    Hamilton Masterpiece 12s PW in 18kt gold

    I retrieved this 922 from my bank box Friday to do my quarterly winding and oohing and ahhhing and thought I would post a picture or two taken prior to its' return today.

    I have had it about 15 years and wind it 4 times yearly (quarterly) and allow it to run down in 4 positions. I oooh and ahhhh accordingly.


    Still spot on timing.

    Hamilton's $700 presentation watch in the 1920's......about $9800 in todays USD. No inscription on this one, though.


    year: Dec. 1927..... 18kt gold case, Sterling Silver dial, 18kt solid gold applied numbers, solid gold hands, solid gold train, 23j, adj 5 positions and to heat, cold, & isochronism. Gorgeously finished pristine movement.



    Many different incarnations even some in Platinum.




    Post them if you got them.

    Wow. I would be interested in how you service this piece. You said you run it 4 times per year. When was it last serviced and how often might you service it under your current schedule.

    I HAD one, which I sold sometime in the early 2000s. 18kt white gold, sterling silver dial.



    Prettiest movement I've ever seen:

    I run it quarterly, but each quarter I run it 4 times in 4 different positions(stem up, down, left, right). I've never had it serviced.
