empressissi™ is pleased to offer this original, elegant American made HAMILTON dress watch for men from the early 50s in design known as the BAILEY in gold filled. Despite the rather traditional design, this is quite an uncommon model from the 50s.
The watch houses a strong 982 manual wind movement with sub seconds, running on 19 jewels and is a quality high grade American made movement. It is cased in a 14K gold filled case with mint crystal and original crown.
The dial was professionally restored in correct print - made of Sterling silver in 'butler' finish with applied solid gold numerals. 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 modest in size even for vintage standards.
Attached to this watch is a brand new, quality slim XL genuine leather band in black tone, 16mm wide, with anti-allergic buckle in matching tone.
