Hamilton Railway Special Pocket Watch Railroad Grade 992B Housed in Popular Model #15 Case
By 1958, the 62-year-old Hamilton Pocket Watch Company had perfected the design and manufacture of their cherished timepieces. This 1950’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.
