We can benefit today from the influence of the great Stendhal. The early 19th century French writer became known during the Russian Campaign for keeping his wits about him and maintaining his "sang-froid and clear-headedness." It is said that he also maintained his daily style regimen during the chaotic retreat from Moscow, including calmly shaving each day. "Only great minds can afford a simple style," he said.
While style is expressed without, it is generated from within. It is that feeling of a "right thing," in an image or work of art, something that seems self-evident. Wrist art is no exception. One is judged by the company one keeps and the style one possesses which, of course, intertwines with fashion. Such evident beauty can be seen clearly in this Deco era American timepiece by the Hamilton Watch Company. Those who dwell above the fray can easily spot the excellence exuded by this piece. It is dreamy; it is strong yet ethereal. It has perfect wrist balance. Such are the things one looks for in a work of wrist art. Such are things one wishes to express to the world.
Measuring within the Golden Mean of 27mm wide by 33mm end-to-end, the work has been carefully and properly restored, as well as fitted with a period strap and offered in a most fetching presentation case.
Those who wish to express fine taste wear such things. We at Strickland Vintage Watches are pleased to offer this exquisite work to the world.
