Description

Vintage pieces like this one represent a sea change period in the Hamilton Watch Company’s history. Operating as a wholly American institution until 1966, Hamilton acquired the Buren Watch Company of Switzerland thus ushering in a new era for the watchmaker. This piece – likely from the 1950’s or early 1960’s – would have been one of Hamilton’s last watches from this pre-Swiss period.

A classic example from an era before men’s watches communicated a statement, this timepiece is undersized and understated. Easy to overlook from afar, up close, the texture and craftsmanship becomes apparent. Notice the precise way the riveted indices are positioned, alternating with the retro-style polished numerals applied at the 3, 6, 9, and noon spots. Additionally, the dauphine hands contribute to the Art Deco styling. It is powered by a hand-wound mechanical movement. Because of their refined yet subtle looks, Hamilton watches have appeared in more film and TV productions than any other brand and this piece would have been right at home on the silver screen during Hollywood’s Golden Age.

This item is in fair pre-owned condition with patina and wear.
