Hamilton Dress Pocket Watch of the Day in White GF and Enameled Case with Original Box
This gorgeous Hamilton dress pocket watch features an art deco white gold fill case decorated with intricate cloisonné enamel artwork around the circumference of the case and bow. Its exquisite dial exhibits a matching design motif highlighted by elegant flèches hands.
The cloisonné enamel work on the watch case and the dial is a wonderful example of an ancient technique involving vitreous enamel glass powders being positioned on metal pieces to make detailed designs. The invention of this technique dates back to around 1100 B.C.E.
The Hamilton Grade 912 Model 2 movement was manufactured in 1932 during the Great Depression, and the same year, a storm began to gather in Europe that eventually led to the Second World War.
The size 12, 17 jewel movement with screw settings and a nickel-plated finish was smaller than the typical railroad grade watches the Hamilton Watch Company was famous for and thereby enhancing the collectibility of this timepiece.
The Hamilton Grade 912 remains a highly prized collectible for its horological significance and history as one of the popular dress watches manufactured during the Great Depression era. Finding a Hamilton Grade 912 in this condition is uncommon and even more so because it comes with its original box.
All our treasured timepieces are completely disassembled, expertly cleaned, and oiled using the finest quality watch oil and gear grease and adjusted for accuracy, and comes with a full one-year warranty.
