Here we have a classic C-1931 Hamilton Railroad pocketwatch with the famous Hamilton’s 992 movement. Featuring 21 jewels, a double roller, and marked adjusted to 5 positions, this movement is finished with some great details – rose gold jewel settings, rose gold timing screws and rose gold center wheel, along with striping along plates and wheels. The 16-size case is in outstanding condition and is made of Nickeloid or Nickel. It was made by the Keystone Watchcase Co. and has screw-on caseback and bezel. The watch features a perfect white enamel railroad dial with bold Arabic numerals and bold Railroad style blued steel hands. Surrounding the dial are contrasting red 5-minute markers. The watch also comes with an original glass crystal.
*Photos are of the watch in its current, unrestored state.
The price includes full restoration and repair. The work will be performed after purchase. This entails proper service of the movement, a new mainspring, and anything else that would be necessary to bring the watch into proper working order. Case cleaning and refinishing are also included. The extent of case refinishing, if any will be left up to the new owner.
Once you’ve made your purchase, please contact us so we may discuss the restoration and case refinishing.
Please allow 1-2 weeks after purchase for service to be completed.
Our goal is to achieve what we refer to as “Sympathetic Restoration”; in other words, bringing the watch back as close as possible to its original appearance without the need to remove all signs of its former life. We don’t want to dramatically change its history.
During the restoration, we only use we only use period-correct parts, and in most cases, genuine factory parts from the same time period as the watch.
