This is one of the jewels of my collection and would be a jewel in any serious collection. This is the flagship movement of the Hamilton company, the 950. What makes this watch rare is the fact that it is not just complete but the movement is a model 1 with the solid bridge and in a 14k Hamilton case.According to the Hamilton records there were only up to 184 model 1 movements put in the 14k plain yellow gold cases. How many are this complete after 103 years? The watch is 16 size 23 jewels lever set and running well. The case is free of any dents and the covers snap on tightly.
The bow is still tight. The double sunk dial and hands are original. The box is original and stamped for the jeweler with the same stamp on the Hamilton certificate.
The original sales receipt and 2 service slips are framed with the certificate to help preserve them. This is most likely one of the few 14k 950 model 1 that you will ever see this complete.
I would even go so far as to suggest trying to find another of these with box, cert, and receipt..... This may be the only one. Please contact me with any questions.
