This Hamilton pocket watch is a rare variant of the 992B with a rare 3 digit serial number.

It also has the additional bonus of being in superb condition with an original enamel Montgomery dial marked Hamilton Railway Special and is one of the best examples I have had for sale for a while.

The movement is signed “Hamilton Watch Co, USA, 992B, 21 Jewels, Adj Temp & Six positions” # C580.  The movement is in 99% mint condition – superb condition

Case – the movement comes in a 10K gold Filled open face Hamilton case which has a screw off back and front. The case has turned detailing on the back and front bezels and a smooth plain finish on the back cover. The case has the patent stirrup bow over the winder. The case is in 90% mint condition –a little wear on the edge but overall a superb example

Dial – the white enamel Montgomery style dial is double sunk and a particularly fine example. It has a full set of blue steel hands and is signed “Hamilton Railway Special”. The dial is in 100% mint condition – even the hands have their original blue bloom. SUPERB.
