Folks we have a very special offering an all original Hamilton Pocket Watch Model 912 in the original Bakelite Box, yes! The original Bakelite Boxes are very elaborate display boxes, few of these have survived and few are put on the market for sale. This display box is in just excellent condition with no chips or dents and and the Royal Blue Velvet looks like new. This Men’s Dress Pocket Watch package is all original and what is referred to as quadruple signed that is the dial, movement, pocket watch case and display box all are marked Hamilton and in excellent condition, what more could a collector ask for?
The dial on this wonderful timepiece is truly a rare find with a beautiful two tone finish with raised gold Arabic numerals, like I have never seen before. The dial is double sunk; the center, outer chapter and sub register are each individual pieces soldered together. I mention this due to the complex finish on each chapter. The outer chapter has the raised gold numerals on a two tone iridescent look of both gold and silver just gorgeous! The center chapter is a brush gold finish with the Hamilton Logo. The sub chapter for the second hand has the same very rare and wonderful iridescent finish. This beautiful stylized custom dial is off set with beautifully blued steel ornate ‘Open Diamond Cross Bar Hands”. Hopefully the photographs help tell the story of this extra fine and truly an exceptional Hamilton Pocket Watch and Hamilton Bakelite Display Box.
