Hamilton Oval C-1928 Item #2515 Price $2175
One of the rarest wristwatches ever produced!
Here we have an very nice example of the very rare Hamilton Oval with a serial number that dates it to 1928. 90 YEARS OLD!!! Of all the American made Hamilton watches, this is one of the rarest. Very few were made and sold!
This one is powered by Hamilton's Caliber 987 movement, one of the very first movements produced specifically for a wristwatch. The watch is housed in a Hamilton signed Fahy's case in 14K White Gold Fill. It measures 29mm across without the crown and 37mm from lug tip to lug tip. At nearly 100 years old, it does show signs of its former life. While not perfect, this one is in better condition than others we came across while researching the model.
The watch comes fully and correctly serviced including a new mainspring. We completely disassembled and ultrasonically cleaned the case, but did no polishing or refinishing. Given its age and condition, we thought it best to leave it alone. We paired the watch with our best genuine genuine crocodile strap, handmade in Italy.
