Hamilton 992B Bar Over Crown C-1945 Item #13178 Price $575
Here we have a great looking Hamilton Railroad Grade 992B, housed in a yellow gold-filled Bar Over Crown (BOC) case. The case shows a bit of very light surface wear on the caseback but is in very good condition overall. It features very nice detailing on the bow, pendant, and bezel. The 992B movement features 21 jewels and is adjusted to 6 positions and temperature. This high grade railroad movement also features rose gold jewel settings, rose gold timing screws and swan's neck micrometer regulator. The Hamilton signed dial is perfect and features huge boxcar style hour markers and matching spade and dart hands.

Our goal is to achieve what we refer to as "Sympathetic Restoration"; in other words, bringing the watch back as close as possible to its original appearance without the need to remove all signs of its former life. We don't want to dramatically change its history.
During the restoration, we only use we only use period-correct parts, and in most cases, genuine factory parts from the same time period as the watch.
