    Hamilton 971 16s hunter mc gold.

    Nice case and early 21j uncommon stem set best quality 1903? hunter. A recent good buy. I was unfamiliar with 971 so that was an unexpected bonus.The case has unusual hand work decor. which prompted my purchase initially.

    Very nice indeed. Multi-color cases are in big demand.

    Hamilton's production logs show your movement went to the Finishing Department on March 25, 1905. It would have taken some weeks or months to be shipped out to a jeweler.

    In that era Hamilton sold movements uncased, so the consumer chose the quality of movement that suited him, and then picked a case from the jeweler's inventory into which it would be installed. Whoever bought this one had good taste -- and money!

    Have age 95 friend with 60 year Hamilton p.w. collection. My photos of his 993. Not sure he has 971.
