Ah, the pride of the American Watch movement — the Hamilton Pocket Watch! Adored by railroaders and collectors the world over; treasured by those who know fine timepieces and hoarded by collectors; without question, Hamilton Watch Company of Lancaster, Pa. has emerged as one of the finest watch houses ever to build a timepiece. Around the world, the Hamilton watch is lauded for its innovative design, both functionally and artistically. Beginning their claim to fame as designers of Railroad Pocket watches with degrees of error measured within fractions of seconds a day, Hamilton went on to become major forces in the wristwatch line, hiring the brightest designers and engineers to oversee development of hundreds of original styles. Today Hamilton watches retain their spot as most favored timepieces among fashion artists and collectors.
Not only is this model 992 a breathtaking example of all that was good in the American railroad watch arena, it features no less than a stunning Montgomery dial with graduated outer minutes register, finely-blued spade hands and "ground" sub-seconds register.
Housing this masterpiece of engineering achievement is what appears to be a fine J. Boss 20 year railroad case.
