    1949 Hamilton Cedric (before photos)

    Inspired in this thread, I went out and bought a 1949 Hamilton Cedric project watch going cheap on the 'bay. These are the before photos, it might be 3-4 months before I post the after photos, I'll necro the thread then

    Missing '2'

    Generally in good condition - US$46

    Crystal is bad (been ordered)

    14K Filled

    Patinated dial, which I would normally keep - but as it has to get the 2 replaced, it'll get done (been posted).

    Lovely 982 Movement, ticking along but needs a good service... I am looking forward to working on this one.




    I appreciate the way Hamilton identify models inside the case - it makes life easier.

    Advert

    This one is off to International Dial as well. Beyond salvage.

    This will be fun. Keep us posted!

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Yes, these are certainly absurdly cheap considering the wonderful movement inside.

    Is that a piece of dirt or something on the sub-seconds dial at around 57 seconds?

    Gah, I don't know. I think so, as I didn't see it previously. I'll have to check when I get home.
