1928 Hamilton Barrel Plain

1928 Hamilton Barrel Plain

Serviced May 2021, original silver dial with painted numerals and minute track. Hand polished 14k white gold filled case, unworn leather strap, mineral glass crystal, NOS alloy mainspring.

Produced from 1927 through 1931, the Barrel Plain is from the so called "geometric" era of Hamilton watches when their wrist watches were named for their case shapes. The serial number on the barrel bridge is from 1928. This Barrel Plain comes with a manual wind, American made, Hamilton caliber 987 with 17 jewels. The original silver dial is in very good condition with some light patina and a radium burn at 4:30. The paint on the outer minute track is in excellent condition. The hands appear to be original with patina. It appears that they were re-lumed at some point in the watch's distant past, although they no longer glow. A NOS mineral glass crystal was installed during service May 2021. The hand polished 14k gold filled case shows some fine scratching with little to no plate wear. The watch comes ready to wear on an unworn black genuine leather strap with stainless steel hardware. The 987 manual wind movement was serviced May 2021 and is running well and currently performing at +/- 48 seconds per day.
