Sold Pristine Antique Gentleman’s Hamilton Pocket Watch Grade 925 Housed is this Beautiful Rose Gold Fill Hunter Case circa 1902

Quick Overview

We are pleased to offer for your consideration this pristine Hamilton Pocket Watch Grade 925 circa 1902. The Gentleman’s Dress Pocket Watch of the day. Depending on the source this may or may not be listed as “railroad grade”, very few railways would reject this pocket watch in 1902. With over 500 independent railroad companies some operating as little as 80 miles of track, this is a better timepiece than most pocket watches in service. The Grade 925 was made in a limited production of only 71,000 in total. This fine pocket watch is in excellent condition and a wonderful configuration with the Grade 925 Movement, pristine Hamilton Roman Numeral Dial, original Spade/Spade Railroad Hands housed in the Crown Case Company Rose Gold Fill Case. The Hamilton 925 Movement is in pristine condition and has the beautiful antique damasking highlighted with black lettering, a truly stunning movement. This fine Hamilton 925 is a size 18 and measures 2 ¼ inches in diameter. I so hope the many pictures and extreme magnification helps in the description.


The late 19th early 20th Century American Pocket Watch set the worldwide standard for beauty and accuracy in timekeeping.


All of our Antique and Vintage Pocket Watches are cleaned, oiled and adjusted for accuracy and warranted for 1 year from the date of purchase.

We are pleased to offer for your consideration this pristine Hamilton Pocket Watch Grade 925 circa 1902. The Gentleman’s Dress Pocket Watch of the day. Depending on the source this may or may not be listed as “railroad grade”, very few railways would reject this pocket watch in 1902. With over 500 independent railroad companies some operating as little as 80 miles of track, this is a better timepiece than most pocket watches in service. The Hamilton Watch Company named the different grades on an odd even basis. So the 925 would be the Hunter Case version and the Open Face 924, the same grade movement only in the Hunter Case configuration winding at the 3:00 position as opposed to the open face winding at the 12 position. The Grade 925 was made in a limited production of only 71,000 in total. After the turn of the century the open face pocket watch became the “railroad standard” and far fewer Hunter Case Pocket Watches like this 925 were manufactured making for a highly desired classic pocket watch. We have excellent example of the sparse Hamilton Grade 925 housed in this fine Rose Gold Fill Hunter Case. This fine pocket watch is in excellent condition and a wonderful configuration with the Grade 925 Movement, pristine Hamilton Roman Numeral Dial, original Spade/Spade Railroad Hands housed in the Crown Case Company Rose Gold Fill Case. The front cover opens with a push down on the crown to display the dial and the back has an inside dust cover that protects the movement and the back cover, we have a triple hinge Gold Fill Case in excellent condition. I so hope the many pictures and extreme magnification helps in the description.

The Hamilton 925 Movement is in pristine condition and has the beautiful antique damasking highlighted with black lettering, a truly stunning movement. This fine Hamilton 925 is a size 18 and measures 2 ¼ inches in diameter. The full plate nickel silver movement has 17 fine Ruby Jewels with raised gold jewel settings, safety pinion a high grade micro regulator and gold balance weights. This fine timepiece is also adjusted to heat and cold with a gold center wheel and train with a steel escapement, all designed for an incredibly accurate pocket watch. Truly one of the finest Gentleman’s Pocket Watches manufactured and rivals any pocket watch for accuracy. This fine Hamilton has just been serviced and is an incredibly accurate timekeeper.

This antique Hamilton 925 is faced with a pristine “private label” Hamilton Single Sunk Dial highlighted with the classic Roman numerals, a rare find is such fine condition. The fine dial was made for “Krall Bros. Tyndall S.D.” written out in the classic handwritten font. This fine dial has a raised outer circumference with the classic Hamilton Roman numerals and every 5-minute marker highlighted in red Arabic numerals with the Railroad Track design around the outer the circumference. Then we have the recessed sub chapter for the second hand. These ornate dials where made using 2 Copper Plates soldiered together, and then baked with many layers of Silica giving the dial the deep rich porcelain finish. This Hamilton Dial is truly a rare find in such fine condition, without flaws. This fine Hamilton dial is highlighted with the original Blued Steel Spade/Spade Railroad Hands. This fine Hamilton Pocket Watch shows beautifully and is sure to be appreciated for generations to come.

The Hamilton 925 Movement is housed in a beautiful antique Crown Watch Case Company Hunter Case, highly desired. This case is in excellent condition and functions, as it should. These antique cases are referred to as triple hinge cases. We have the 2 outer covers (front and back) and then the dust cover to protect the movement. This is a beautifully case without personal engraving and showing less than normal pocket wear and no abuse. These Hunter Cases are very popular and most did not survive the last 113 years like this case has. These cases did not last due to the Coin Silver, Gold or Gold Fill being to soft for the case springs made of steel, the steel case springs that latch tend to wear through, so we are pleased to have this fine offering for your consideration. This fine Hamilton 925 Pocket Watch is all original and ready for daily wear or as a wonderful addition to any collection.

The late 19th early 20th Century American Pocket Watch set the worldwide standard for beauty and accuracy in timekeeping.
