1951 Hamilton Beldon CLD

1951 Hamilton Beldon CLD

Serviced December 2018, excellent two tone silver and white dial with light patina and 18k gold applied numbers, polished 10k gold filled case and bezel, unworn leather strap, alloy mainspring.

Made for five years from 1951 through 1955, the Beldon is a part of Hamilton's CLD ("sealed") lineup of watches. The CLD line of watches came with a series of gaskets that were designed to keep moisture and dust out of the case and were marketed as "weatherproof". This line predates the "waterproof" watches that were introduced by Hamilton in the late 1950's. This particular Beldon features an American made 747 caliber manual mind movement with 17 jewels. The two tone silver and white dial has very light patina. The painted minute track, sub seconds track, Hamilton logo, and CLD branding are excellent. The crown is slightly "wobbly" as the gasket that is normally in place has long ago disintegrated. The crown is still secure and winds and sets the watch as normal. Note: This watch is NOT waterproof, or even water resistant. The 747 manual wind movement was serviced December 2018 and is running well and currently performing at +/- 12 seconds per day.
