I just google-fu'd and found that - it's the Hamilton Spirit of Liberty model with the H-10 movement. That watch is a serious timepiece and is no joke. That's a beautiful watch that you'll be able to pass down for generations.

Nice Tag Heuer 2000 Sports from the early 2000's. Back when they were still tough as nails.

Nobody to pass it down to, my daughter wouldn’t want it. I love Hamiltons and this is my 8th one and I’m about to buy another. Have several other watches but really like Hamiltons for their design, quality, and value.
I’d have a ton of Omegas if I had the coin.

Whole lotta awesome in those boxes right there.

My dad was an antique dealer, and he collected vintage Hamiltons. He left a railroad grade Hamilton pocket watch to each of his sons, and he always wore Hamiltons (vintage American ones, usually rectangular). My current daily wear is a Navy Frogman (the one from about 10 years ago with the all Titanium case and bracelet) and I love the thing to death.

My "grail" piece right now is a Hamilton Mod. 22 Marine Chronometer like they made for the Navy in WWII, complete with the boxes and gimbal mounts. I want one for a desk clock in the worst way, but don't have a couple grand to drop on it.

Those Hamilton Marine Chronometers are really cool.
I'm a big fan of vintage watches, you can get some really nice pieces for very little money (comparatively).

I love that coined bezel:
