Hamilton produced the Cushion Plain watch starting in 1927 through 1932 using the 987 caliber family of movements. 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 1931. The case and bezel on this example are 14k white gold filled and have been hand polished. The center piece of the case is engraved and the bezel is smooth, hence the "plain" in the name. The case back is also in excellent condition. The silver dial has honest patina and the paint is in good condition. The dial appears to be original and was relumed during service. The three hands are blue have also been relumed. This Hamilton Cushion Plain comes ready to wear on an unworn, black leather band with silver tone buckle.
