Hamilton Grade 992 Railroad 21 Jewel Housed in Popular Bar Over Crown Case

The Hamilton Grade 992 is the quintessential American-made Railroad Grade pocket watch. Hamilton’s 992 featured unparalleled accuracy and superb construction, much to the envy of watchmakers the world over, including the vaunted Swiss manufacturers.

The 992 featured here was part of the 1922 production run. This fine movement is housed in this popular 14k white gold fill Hamilton/Wadsworth bar over crown case. The watch is lever set and utilizes a bar over crown design to prevent damage to the movement that could occur by accidentally pulling up on the crown to set.

This watch’s movement is in excellent condition, with 21 sapphire and ruby jewels in gold settings. Its legendary movement also features a Reed regulator, Breguet hairspring, and gold center wheel. This combination of fine materials and expert craftsmanship is the foundation of the 992s reputation as the “Railroad Timekeeper of America”.

The exterior of this Hamilton 992 is in good condition and bears the marks of history on its surface, with some minor crazing and a chip under the bezel that doesn’t show. It also has some minor impressions on the case back. This Hamilton 992 wasn’t a watch that sat safely on a shelf but carried in service riding the rails.

It’s more than a piece of history. It was a participant in history. You can feel the priceless stories of times long gone when you hold this watch in your hand.
