Hamilton 992B Railway Special, Late 1940’s
Here we have a Hamilton 992B Railroad Grade pocketwatch from the late 1940’s. The last of the breed! It’s also the third and final version of America’s most famous Railroad pocketwatch.
The 16-size case is stainless steel and Hamilton signed, made by the Star Company. It’s in outstanding condition with only light surface scratching. Note the very nice railroad track pattern around the bezel and case back. The malomene dial has some hairline cracks, typical for this this type of dial. It still looks very nice overall. The watch features a beautiful 992B 21-jewel movement with gold accents, a double roller, and adjusted to 6 positions and temperature.
Would make an excellent carry watch!
*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.
