1928 Hamilton Cushion Plain

1928 Hamilton Cushion Plain

Serviced May 2019, polished 14k white gold filled factory engraved case, smooth bezel, good dial with honest patina, unworn leather strap, NOS mineral glass crystal, NOS alloy mainspring.

Hamilton produced the Cushion Plain watch starting in 1927 through 1932 using the 987 caliber movement. This was 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 February 1928. The case and bezel on this example are 14k white gold filled and have been hand polished. The center piece of the case engraved and the bezel is smooth, hence the "plain" in the name. The case back is also in excellent condition. The silver dial has hones patina and the paint is in good condition. The dial appears to be original. The three hands are blue and the lume has long since disintegrated. This Hamilton Cushion Plain comes ready to wear on an unworn, black leather band with silver tone buckle. The American made Hamilton caliber 987 small seconds movement was serviced May 2019 and is running well and currently performing at +/- 2 minutes per day.
