Rare Grade 937 Hunter
Scarce...Only 4,930 Produced
Beautiful YGF Case
Mint DS Railroad Dial
Railroad Grade Hunter
Just Fully Serviced!
| Circa 1900, Here's a beautiful and very hard to acquire 18S Hamilton Model 937 hunter cased in a nice fancy hunting case! Has the "Strongarm" symbol on inside back. Case opens a bit wide in back, front opens to 90 and hinges tight, functions properly and looks great! |
This 17 Jewel lever set timepiece would also be RR Grade in this early time period as it met all requirements. Has a mint double sunk correct Hamilton Watch Company dial as well. The Movement is a nickel full plate 17 jewel signed "Hamilton Watch Co., and Adjusted". Also first year production. (1900-1915) New Glass Crystal...Running & timing perfectly, has just been fully cleaned and new mainspring installed.
Folks, this is only the second or third 937 I've ever had. This is one grade you'll look a long time for and possibly never find. Where all 4000 plus went is a mystery to me but in real world collecting they are just not there. So here's your opportunity. If you're looking for a quality big Hamilton railroad hunter in good condition you can pass down thru the generations that is also very scarce, or want to fill that hole in your Hamilton collection, check this one out!

Opens and closes properly, hinges super tight, just a beauty. Nice crown and bow, Glass Crystal. Looks Great on this watch! Just a honey of a case here.
Dial... is original Elgin double sunk roman dial. Perfect, no hairlines that I can see. Nice original blued hands. Perfect Original Railroad Dial!
Movement... is still like new as well on this fine timepiece. It features a high grade regulator, marked adjusted. Running along nicely and timing well, has not been serviced. Another of Elgin's most beautiful, highly damaskeened movements.
The 348 was made only 3 years, 1903-05, and only 3698 were ever made, very low production for an Elgin.
