Hamilton grade 962, 16 size pocket watch superb rare 2 star watch
Thank you for considering one of my estate finds. This is a superb Hamilton 16 size pocket watch, and is one of the first size 16 watches produced by Hamilton and one of only 350 gr 962 watches produced. The serial number is #50318, sent to the finishing department on Feb. 6, 1897 as part of a run quantity of 300. It is an extra clean bridge plate movement with 17 jewels, adjusted and railroad grade. The face (dial) has 2 very fine hairlines in the porcelain that are hard to see with the naked eye.
The zoom of the camera shows them. The case is a 25 year gold filled that still has most of the engine turned design on the back and no wear thru that I can find. It was a treasured heirloom and it shows.
The main question is, where and when will you see another or get the chance to own one? There were only 350 made.
