Hamilton 23 Jewel Railroad Pocket Watch, Model 950B
Hamilton 23 Jewel Railway Special Model 950B! This highest grade Hamilton is 16 size (case diameter 50 mm). The movement is a marked grade 950B, the highest grade made by Hamilton and possibly the finest mass-produced, mechanical timepiece ever made. This 950B is lever set, with 23 jewels, gold jewel settings, jeweled barrel wheel, and understated diagonal damaskeening. This has the Elinvar Extra hairspring which was one of the most important timekeeping advances of the 20th century. The condition of this movement is simply excellent. This Hamilton Railway Special is cased in the original and correct Hamilton marked case. The case is gold filled and is referred to as the Model A case. The case condition is excellent with only light even wear. Now, on the bezel a few of the small rounded protruberances do have a tiny spot of brass showing. This is almost always found on this particular case style, even on cases like this that have very little wear overall.
The dial for this 950B is porcelain and marked "Hamilton 23 Jewels Railway Special". The dial has bold boxcar numerals with RR track ring, and matching original bold hands. The dial has NO chips, and NO hailines! I don't know how a dial could be any nicer! This fine timepiece was made in about 1950.
This watch runs and keeps reasonable time, but I do not know the history of this watch, so it may need to be serviced. Sorry, this is NOT a "Make Offer" listing.
