This one is sold however we have another that just came in. Hamilton Coronado
According to available historical records, the Hamilton Coronado was produced in 1929 through the mid 1930s in extremely small numbers. During it's production years, the watch was sometimes missing from the Hamilton catalog suggesting these may have been made to order. There was a total 2407 ever produced in white gold; it was also available in yellow gold. The average survival rates for gold watches from this period is well below 50%; making this model one of the rarest Hamilton models on the market. The watch features a solid white gold case, lugs, bezel, crown and caseback. The Bezel is enameled in black with white gold numerals and is in excellent condition with no major flaws noted. Surviving pieces usually have major flaws with the enamel due to wear; however, this watch appears to have been used with extreme care and rarely worn. The caseback has no inscriptions and no inscriptions that had ever been removed. The hinged lugs are in excellent condition, tightly intact and working perfectly without any repairs noted. The watch is executed using the famously reliable and well finished american made Hamilton caliber 979-F. The watch is recently serviced and is in working order and running strong. It comes on a new medium brown genuine lizard strap. Comparable sales are noted below.
