This Watch

We have here a very special Hamilton wristwatch from 1940.  The all Arabic, gilt numerals sit on the rectangular, cream dial which has aged nicely and gives no doubt to the originality of the piece.  The rectangular subsidiary seconds dial give a nice symmetry to the watch.

The 14ct gold case measures 22x37mm, which makes for a comfortable wear.  Originally, the watch would have been for men but we love rectangular Deco watches on women too!

Inside is Hamilton's caliber 982, fully serviced by us and running strongly.

Extra Points
 

The Hamilton Watch Company is a Swiss manufacturer of wristwatches, based in Bienne, Switzerland.  Founded in 1892 as an American company, Hamilton Watch Company ended American manufacture in 1969.  Through a series of mergers and acquisitions, Hamilton eventually became integrated into the Swatch Group, the world's largest watch manufacturing and marketing conglomerate.

 

This watch comes fully serviced by our on-site workshop and with a 12 month, non-waterproof service cover.


What We Think
A deco wristwatch is a must have in any collection and we love this American market piece in 14ct gold.  There is a simplicity to the design that makes this watch something special.  We've paired the watch on a black lizard grain strap but at 80+ years old, it can get away with anything!
