Vintage ca. 1928 Hamilton Piping Rock Watch in Solid 14k White Gold and Caliber 979
If you've been looking for a great example of the original Hamilton Piping Rock, look no further. This is an extremely nice example of the original design Hamilton Piping Rock Watch in solid 14k white gold. There is very little wear on the watch, the hinges are in excellent condition with no issues noted. The original untouched silver dial has developed an iridescent patina as seen in some of the pictures; and it is quite nice and refreshing rather than seeing most of these with refinished dials. There is no personal engraving on this watch which is highly desirable. The iconic enamel bezel in near flawless. This classic model from America’s premier wrist watch manufacturer is in the holy trinity of Hamilton Watches. Featuring tonneau shaped 29 X 38mm case with hinged lugs and near mint black enamel Roman numeral chapter ring surrounding the original patina silvered dial. 17 jewel manual wind calibre 979 movement with subsidiary seconds. Original blued steel gothic style hands and original Hamilton flat wide winding crown. This piece is certainly worthy of what makes up a great Hamilton collection. This watch is presented on a new Hadley-Roma brown tan leather strap, very close to what was originally used, and has had a full overhaul (service) April 2018. Thank you.
