Hamilton’s Finest – Railroad Grade 950B Housed in this Most Popular A Case
The Hamilton Watch Company didn’t invent the railroad watch, but they eventually accounted for over 50 percent of all the pocket watches keeping American trains safe and on time. By 1941, Hamilton was the last man standing, producing two “railroad approved” pocket watches.
This pristine example is the superior 23 jewel 950B, produced in 1950, one of just 2900 manufactured that year.
This elegant Hamilton 950B features a double sunk dial with the coveted “railroad track” design around both the outer circumference and the small seconds sub-dial. The distinctive black baton hands only appear on this model.
This 950B comes in the original 10k gold-filled Model A case. The upgraded movement (balance design, hairspring, cap jewels and mainspring barrel) boasts solid gold train wheels and rhodium plated main plate and bridges.
This immaculate Hamilton 950B is an ideal pocket watch for daily wear or a cherished family heirloom.
All our treasured timepieces are completely disassembled, expertly cleaned and oiled using the finest quality watch oil and gear grease, and adjusted for accuracy. Full one year warranty.
