Hamilton 992B Military - 21 Jewel adjusted to temperature and 6 positions. Rare early U.S. Military WWII era pocket watch #C74815 marked 992B U.S. Govt. on movement. This is a lever set and stem wind open faced watch and one of the finest watches ever made for use on the railroad.

Military signed case houses a beautiful and sparkling damascened well running movement with a gold center wheel. ORDNANCE DEPT. USA and numbers engraved on case back. Dial is excellent with no major chips or hairlines (some slight faint hairlines) and has clean and clear black Arabic numbers with a Montgomery dial. Black spade pointers and sunk seconds dial. A scarce military watch that will look great in any collection for use or display. Recently overhauled and working at modern chronometer specs.
