empressissi™ is pleased to offer this elegant and American made HAMILTON dress watch for men from the mid 40s in design known as the BOULTON in gold filled which is very popular among collectors but hard to find with unworn lugs.
The watch houses a strong state of the art 982 manual wind movement with sub seconds complication, running on 19 jewels and is a quality American made movement. It is cased in relatively small 10K gold filled case with a mint correct crystal and an original crown. It has an inscription on the back for 1950 although this is clearly a mid 40s made watch by model.
The dial is made of Sterling silver and is a factory original with a famous 'butler' brushed finish and applied solid gold numerals/markers. It has an original set of hands.
This Hamilton watch measures 23mm side to side (excluding crown) and 37mm from top lug to bottom lug and is relatively modest in size even for a vintage watch.
Attached to this watch is a brand new, quality genuine leather band in dark brown tone, 16mm wide, with anti-allergic buckle in matching tone.
