1940 Hamilton Emerson

1940 Hamilton Emerson

Serviced December 2018, excellent silver dial with gold applied markers, extremely light flecked patina near the post, polished 10k gold filled case, 10k gold filled Speidel expansion bracelet, NOS acrylic crystal, NOS alloy mainspring.

Introduced in 1940, the Emerson's production was only interrupted during WWII as Hamilton switched to wartime production. This Hamilton Emerson comes with an American made, manual wind caliber 980 movement. The watch has hooded lugs, giving the time piece a unique, almost art deco look. The watch features a sterling silver dial with 18k gold applied numerals. The dial is in excellent condition with a very small spot of patina just below the post. The paint for the Hamilton logo, sub seconds track, and minute track is in mint condition. The case back is monogrammed with the text, "To John from Gert & Janet". The 980 manual movement was serviced December 2018 and is running well and currently performing at +/- 19 seconds per day.
