    Purchase this Hamilton Deco Dial?

    I currently have an Illinois Pocket watch (has a broken pin so time can't be set), but am thinking of getting another.

    Found this Hamilton for sale, priced about $200+. Does it all look good in terms of authenticity, condition etc?

    Thanks!Name:  Screen Shot 2019-05-12 at 12.31.38 AM.jpg

    Very attractive watch!

    The serial number indicates it went to the Finishing Department in April 1930. The 912 was a popular movement for dress watches. There were 260,900 made, between 1923 and 1936.

    Very nice.

    This is mine (at the moment at the watchmaker to fix the crown). Jan 26, 1926

    Wow, great. Thanks for the info. I've just submitted the final bid and purchased it! Can't wait to receive it! This was the other auction I was looking at:

    Would anyone know why it looks particularly corroded / damaged near the right side of the crown on the Art Deco piece?

    May be just the lighting of the picture ?
    Oh, I see what you mean now, looks like some scratching over there. Wish I can help you there

    Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.

    That's where people have been inserting case knives (or other implements) over the years to open the case.
