$1,595.00 $1,275.00

Folks we are pleased to offer for your consideration this classic Hamilton Pocket Watch Railroad Grade 992, Model 1 circa 1908. This fine Hamilton is housed in the rare and desired Salesman Display Case with the glass back to display this pristine movement. These Hamilton Display Cases were used at the turn of the century and not sold to the public; the jeweler or jobber of the day as they were referred too would use the cases for displaying these fine movements for sale, without getting dirt or debris in the movement. The Grade 992 is a size 16 measuring 2 inches in diameter, the most popular size pocket watch. The bezels on these cases snap off as opposed to screw off, so I include a case opener tool for the purpose of easily opening the case to pull the lever to set the time. These clear back display cases are a favorite with Pocket Watch Collectors and this is an excellent example with the old Hamilton Script on the top of each bezel. So few have even seen a fine pocket watch and seeing movement working is truly striking. We have a classic configuration with the antique Hamilton 992 Railroad Grade Movement, Double Sunk Hamilton Dial, Spade/Spade Blued Steel Hands housed in this rare Salesman Display Case all in excellent condition. I hope the many pictures and extreme magnification help in the description of this truly collectable Hamilton Pocket Watch.

This is another excellent example of the late 19th early 20th Century ingenuity that made the American Pocket Watch a worldwide standard for beauty and accuracy in timekeeping.

This Antique Pocket Watch has been cleaned, oiled and adjusted for accuracy. This entails a complete disassembly with all parts cleaned and reassembled using the finest watch oil and gear grease.

This Antique Hamilton Pocket Watch is warranted for one full year from date of purchase.
