empressissi™ is pleased to offer this elegant American made HAMILTON dress watch for men from the early 50s in design known as the SECOMETER B in gold filled.
The watch houses a strong 748 manual wind movement with a rather unusual for the period sweep seconds, running on 18 jewels and is a quality American made movement. It is cased in a bubble back 10K gold filled case with a mint crystal and an original crown.
The dial is made of Sterling silver with applied solid gold markers/numerals and was professionally restored here in our atelier with correct 'butler' brushed finish with the correct print. It has an original set of hands.
This Hamilton watch measures 29mm side to side (excluding crown) and 37mm from top lug to bottom lug and is modest in size even for a vintage watch.
Attached to this watch is a brand new, quality slim genuine leather band in Suede brown tone, 16mm wide, with anti-allergic buckle in matching tone.
