1940 Hamilton Ross (WGF Case)

1940 Hamilton Ross (WGF Case)

Serviced May 2020, hand polished 14k white gold filled case, two-tone gilt and coral dial, superb patina, unworn leather strap, NOS mineral glass crystal, alloy mainspring.

Hamilton produced the Ross from 1939 through 1946. The early models used Hamilton's 980 caliber movement. In 1940, the Ross was offered with additional dials and case materials, one of which was white gold case and gilt/coral dial with a 982 movement. The case and bezel on this example are 14k white gold filled and have been hand polished. The dial has even patina giving the watch tremendous character. The Hamilton logo and sub seconds paint is excellent. Some of the paint is faded on some of the roman numeral hour markers. The original hands are blue. This Hamilton Ross comes ready to wear on a new, never worn, brown leather two piece strap with silver tone buckle and contrasting stitching. The serial number on the movement (J108855) indicates it was finished in 1940. The 982 small seconds movement was serviced May 2020 and is running well and currently performing at +/- 30 seconds per day.
