Hamilton Railway Special Pocket Watch Railroad Grade 992B
By 1953, the 61-year-old Hamilton Pocket Watch Company had perfected the design and manufacture of their cherished timepieces. This early 50’s Railway Special embodies Hamilton’s well-earned reputation for accuracy, quality and durability.
It’s presented in one of the most popular configurations for both its original customers and latter day collectors: a pristine melamine Hamilton double sunk Railway Special boxcar dial over a 992B lever set movement featuring black steel spade/whip railroad hands.
The movement is the watch’s crowning achievement, boasting 21 fine ruby jewels, flush gold jewel settings, double roller, Breguet hairspring, high-grade micro regulator, gold balance weights and a gold center wheel and train with a steel escapement.
This, the last of the great Hamilton Railroad Model pocket watches, is housed in a stainless steel Hamilton Model 15 case – the strongest of the classic Railroad Pocket Watch cases. Ideal for modern day carry.
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.
