The Hamilton Co. was considered the “Railroad timekeeper of America,” and railroad grade watches were the company’s basic mission.  As a result, the company made very few dress pocket watches. Therefore, this Hamilton Grade 975 Model 2 was  rare and special.  

This very beautiful dress watch features an Arabic numeral dial with black spade pointers and red five minute marks , a  fine 17 jewel  screw set movement all housed in a dressy  hunter case.  There is a patented regulator and movement has been adjusted to temperatures.  This size 16 watch is pendant set and wind.  

This  well running and serviced Hamilton 975 movement is housed in a gorgeous and equally unusual  beautifully engraved  gold fill hunter case of the ART DECO era and features leaves, pontils and a house scene as well as an open shield ready for your initials.  

If you’re a fan of Hamilton’s fine pocket watches and are looking for a fine  specimen of the Hamilton Watch Company’s craftsmanship, this watch certainly fills that role. It displays beautifully, and the well -functioning hunter case elevates this timepiece into a league of its own.

Ashton-Blakey Vintage Watches has provided watches and chains to members and executive of the Vintagers Club of America.
