Both recent buys. The first one is from circa 1917.
It started with an emptying a Hamilton case of a busted 910:
The 910 busted both sides. Bad movement, VERY bad dial. Good case, though.
Non original crown and bow, but more than just usable. It's a 25-yr Hamilton case - no wear-through whatsoever.
This case I used to recase a 914 from similar period (quite close S/N), short of it's original (likely gold) case:
It's hard to catch the exact tone, but the embossed center bit has a stunning gold gloss. There also are applied numbers and - even better - the dial is in perfect condition!
Under the signed back...
A better version of the 910, nicely finished with it's gold settings and balance screws.
It's 'only' a 17-jewel 3-pos movement and - in fact - at first I wanted to find a 900 for the case, but the dial I just could not resist. Just so cool.
And now - the other one, circa 10 years younger, from the 1920s...
This one is all embossed...
...with two tone (gold and silver) finish over grey background.
It has a white gold filled Hamilton case:
and a lower grade 912 movement:
Might be lower grade, but there are hardly any LOW grade Hamiltons (there are - early and scarce) so it's still a very decent machine.
Both surely are beautiful watches :)
