Hamilton Pocket Watch Art Deco Motif – Housed in the Popular Green Gold Fill Case
The Hamilton Watch Company was always attuned to the latest trends. While their minimalist railroad pocket watches satisfied the public’s need for legibility, practically, affordability and durability, Hamilton made watches that added real panache.
This Hamilton 912 – the gentlemen’s pocket watch of day – is a perfect example. It dates to 1924, when Art Deco became deeply fashionable, adopted for everything from trains to vacuum cleaners.
This size 12 Hamilton pocket watch’s metal dial – produced in a fetching shade of gold – reflects the era’s desire to embrace new materials. The Hamilton logo curved around the center motif embodies Art Deco’s move away from linear shapes.
The Hamilton watch’s gold fill case is a beautifully subtle shade of green – extremely popular at the time. Although the movement has Geneva stripes, it eschews the script font for cleaner, more machine-age typography.
This watch is a stylish addition to any pocket watch collection.
All our treasured timepieces are completely disassembled, expertly cleaned and oiled using the finest quality watch oil and gear grease, adjusted for accuracy. Full one year warranty.
