  Circa 1900, LS, Marked Adjusted, gold train/gold capped regulator, RR Grade/Approved, this is a hi grade 23 Jewel Veritas 214 with a beautiful nickel movement in the much scarcer 18S version!

I have made some outstanding buys recently as and usual I am passing the savings along to you...this is a one of a kind in remarkable condition...don't lose it!

Case... is a B&B 20 Year RR case featuring a french bow and plain polished back..It is like new in every respect! No wear whatsoever. Like new crown and bow. Glass crystal.Beautiful As New B&B Royal Case!

Dial... is original DS RR Elgin dial and is near perfect...couple lite scratches. Original hard to find early "Curly Q" dial. Beautiful blued Triple matching Elgin RR hands....very clean.

Movement... is Elgin's highest grade Railroad timepiece. It features a high grade regulator fitted with a gold cap and a gold train, marked adjusted (five positions). Internally Jeweled Barrell. Running and timing well. Elgin's most beautiful, highly damaskeened and most sought after movement.
Folks, here's your chance at an extra nice scarcer 18 Size 23 Jewel Veritas in a beautiful like new B&B Case in outstanding condition to show and enjoy....you'll not likely find this nice an example anywhere near this low price...grab it while you can!... $499.99

GGF Hamilton "Crossbar" Case
CPR #577 Dial
All Original 1925 CPR!
MAKE A GOOD OFFER
Serial #
2327259


  Folks, I've saved the best for last this spring...I'm going to offer some authentic 1924-1937 Hamilton 992 and 992Es cased in their original Hamilton Model Cases! These are getting very hard to find all original in this condition, and I would like to help preserve these for future generations to admire and collect like we have done. Some will be literally one or just a few that were shipped in certain model and color cases by year, this is a fascinating part of Hamilton railroad collecting, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

This is a customer trade in, he is a motivated seller and is looking for a fair offer. Click the "MAKE OFFER" button to make your bid!

Circa 1925, Lever Set, Adjusted to Temp. and 5 Positions, Double Roller, RR Grade/Approved, this is a beautiful 992...in an almost impossible to acquire GREEN gold filled Hamilton "Crossbar" Model Case...The CPR Model!All original from 1925! Features the correct original double sunk #577 dial, and second model movement. These are about gone from the marketplace, everyone is parting them out, and one like this is a treasure...grab this one while you can!

Case... on this watch is a Wadsworth 14K Crossbar Model Green Gold Filled Case. See The Factory Ad Below...This was the first in the railroad Model Series! It is in extra nice condition, probably the finest Green Gold example I've seen, shows beautifully as you can see. Stunning "wide shouldered" model with crossbar pyramid bow. Plain polished back shows almost as new. Bow stands up firm on it's own and crown is super nice. Tough Green Gold Model to find in this nice of condition! Very hard to find Crossbar Case!

Dial... is the desirable marked Hamilton double sunk #577 version, the factory original that came on this watch. These dials are also tough to find nowdays. Perfect...no hairlines. Beautiful blued Hamilton hands that also show new, all original and correct, just as you'd want it.

Movement... looks very nice on this one. Check out the picture. Features tuxedo second model damaskeening, Fully marked. This watch has just been fully checked by us. Running perfectly, has not been serviced.
Folks, this original 1925 992 CPR Model is an important piece of Hamilton railroad history.

This is one of the scarcest cases to acquire as Hamilton did not make many of these true CPR Models, especially in Green GF.

It's my belief the few remaining examples of these should be preserved. Get this original beauty and pass it down to future generations. Beautiful original 992 "CPR" with the #577 original Hamilton dial and beautiful very scarce green gold filled "crossbar" model case...Wow!........$529.00 OBO
