14 carat gold filled size gentlemans' Hamilton pocket watch in very good original condition, in its original bakelite Hamilton presentation box. The case and dial present very well and the movement is running strongly and keeping time.
Case: in very good condition, gently used with no obvious signs of brassing (wear through). The case shows the expected signs of use but no evidence of abuse, dents or scratches of any significance that I could see. It measures approximately 45 mm in diameter. On the inside of the rear cover it is signed "Hamilton" and hallmarked as 14 carat gold filled. The bow and crown are in very good condition.
Dial: in very good original condition, signed “Hamilton” with hours marked by crisp black Arabic numerals and an outer minutes chapter. There is a sunken subsidiary seconds dial just above the 6 o'clock position. The dial presents very well, showing some light marks visible on close inspection. The elegant hands are in great condition and the crystal is clean and clear.
Movement: Hamilton cal. 917 movement has damaskeened plates (Geneve stripes) and is marked "Hamilton Watch Co. USA 17 Jewels Adjusted 3 Positions". The movement is running well and keeping time. The watch is wound and set by the crown.
Presentation Box: original bakelite case in very good condition indeed. The hinges work perfectly.
