VINTAGE WATCHES, PRE-OWNED & USED SWISS, AMERICAN WATCHES & JEWELRY

Bulova 12-S Open Face Pendant Pocketwatch circa 1940’s

SOLD

Great looking and unusual YGF Bulova 12 size open face pocket watch circa 1940’s. Featuring a 45mm diameter case with beautiful original salmon dial with black printed Breguet style figures, and blued steel gothic style hands. Powered by 17 jewel manual wind movement with subsidiary seconds.

Obvious in the photos is the very unusual configuration of the bow and crown. The watch is configured “upside down,”  designed to face the holder when removed from the vest or pants pocket. This “pendant style configuration is more often seen in small lady and nurse’s pendant watches, worn on a jacket, or uniform to facilitate reading the time or taking a patient’s pulse, but quite uncommon in a man’s pocket watch.

A great looking vintage model recently serviced and with lightly detailed case. Offered with our 1 year warrantee of accurate time keeping and operation. Includes vintage pocket watch chain shown in photo.

Hamilton is easily considered the preeminent brand of wristwatches made in America. Since WBAW? opened its doors nearly 40 years ago, we have been proud purveyors of used and vintage Hamilton watches. Founded in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in 1892 producing high quality pocket watches for gentlemen, ladies, and for railroad workers and executives, Hamilton is the best known and highest regarded of the U.S. watchmakers of the 20th Century. Hamilton was the first in the 1980’s to introduce reissues of many of its most popular models from the 1940’s, 1950’s, and 1960’s, including the Boulton, the Hamilton Electric reissue of the Ventura, the Ardmore, the Carlisle, and countless others.

We are proud to represent the finest of vintage and pre-owned Hamilton watches in our selection.
