1962 Hamilton Thin-o-Matic T-452

1962 Hamilton Thin-o-Matic T-452

Serviced February 2019, very good dial with light patina, hand polished 10k gold filled case and stainless steel case back, unworn leather strap, acrylic crystal, alloy mainspring.

Hamilton began producing the Thin-o-Matic line of watches in 1959 using Swiss made micro rotor movements. These movements allowed Hamilton to produce high quality automatic watches as well as capitalize on the prevailing trend of thin watch cases. This Thin-o-Matic T-452 was first introduced in 1962 and was made through 1964. The watch comes with a Swiss (Buren) made micro rotor automatic movement, caliber 663 with 17 jewels and a center sweep second hand. The tip of the second hand is accented with bright red paint. The light cream colored dial is in very good condition and is showing even flecked patina under the loupe. The painted Hamilton logos and unique script Thin-o-Matic brand are in excellent condition, as is the painted minute track. The hands appear to be original with light patina. The 10k gold filled case and integrated stainless steel case back are hand polished. The bezel has very little scratching but the side of the case near the crown is marred slightly. The watch comes ready to wear on a brand new, unworn brown leather croc print strap with a gold tone buckle. The 663 automatic movement was serviced February 2019 and is running well and currently performing at +/- 22 seconds per day.
