Rare Hamilton Railroad Grade 950B Housed in the Popular Hamilton Model A Case

This Hamilton Grade 950B Model 6 housed in the popular Model A Case configuration is an outstanding example of the finest pocket watch ever made. This watch holds its rightful place as one of the most sought-after railroad-grade watches in history and for good reason. The vaunted Swiss watchmakers were never able to match the accuracy and reliability of the Hamilton Grade 950B, and this specimen of the Hamilton Grade 950B, produced in 1951, maintains its legendary accuracy at +/- 30 seconds a week or better despite being seventy-one years old.

It’s a special watch made of the finest materials, and yet only 32,500 were ever produced making it an incredibly rare find, especially in excellent condition, it looks as great as it runs. It was a highly efficient watch for the new generation of highly efficient diesel locomotives that continue to rule the railways today.

This watch is a testament to American ingenuity, and the spirit of the 1950s as the world hurtled toward the space age. When you hold it in your hand and listen to its rhythmic ticking, it’s easy to appreciate the complexity of this timepiece crafted during simpler times. It’s legendary among collectors for its history, design, looks, and the way it feels. If you want to own a precious piece of Hamilton history with a pocket watch hardy enough for daily wear, look no further.
