Hamilton 18S 21J
Scarce Grade "942"
Hamilton Display Case
Only 5418 Produced
Serial #
178389


JFS

  Circa 1901, LS, adjusted 5 positions, double roller, motor barrel, 21 Jewels, RR Grade/Approved, this is a beautiful, very scarce Hamilton 942 in a stunning display case. These are top of the line watches and this example is in collector quality condition and at a great price, take a look.

Case... is an unmarked Hamilton snap back and front salesman's sample case in beautiful condition. Nice crown and tight bow. Glass crystals front and back. Perfect to showcase this upscale 942!

Dial... is original double sunk glass enamel Hamilton Watch Co. Arabic dial with red five minute markers and bold Arabic numerals. Coirrectly marked for this 1901 Hamilton. Perfect...no hairlines. Triple matching blued steel hands. Supurb Original Dial.

Movement... is extra nice on this 942. It is marked "21 Jewels", and "Adjusted" as these early ones were. Hamilton put a lot of extra work into these, even the plates under dial are damaskeened! Consequently, they were priced much higher than the 940, and not many were made. One of hamilton's best quality railroad watches! Running well with good motion and has been timing on my desk. Ready to show and enjoy! Really one of Hamilton's most beautiful, highly damaskeened 18S movements, and very tough to find. Only 5,418 of these were ever made, and seldom surface. They're just not out there. This is the first one I've had in quite some time and one of the best condition examples ever at Time Machine! Top Book is $650 on these.
Folks, here's a beautiful 942 in a very nice display case...at a very good price! Super addition to your Hamilton Collection.......$349.00
