Hamilton Aquatimer Stainless Steel circa 1970's

$2,750.00

(Wire/check payment 3% DISCOUNT at checkout)

We have the pleasure of offering another example scarce and absolutely stunning vintage Hamilton stainless steel Aquatimer model circa 1974. We recently posted our first ever of this model which met with a lot of enthusiasm and a quick sale. We were fortunate enough to acquire the current example from a fine gentleman who was browsing for information about his watch and came across our listing in our SOLD archive. We were able to purchase this fine example, while assuring the owner that we would publicly acknowledge him, restore the watch to fine condition, and find a fitting and deserving home for this beauty! While he was not the original owner, he bought it years ago from a local jewelry shop in Bismarck, North Dakota and has enjoyed it for years. We have now fully serviced the watch, and you will note, we have left the hands entirely originally, with some noticeable, but minor loss to the lume, which like it’s owner, has undergone no cosmetic surgery; still looking handsome and distinguished decades later! Another ironic note; this writer was wearing his own example of this model the day this gentleman called to offer us his.

Featuring an oversize cushion shaped case with pronounced crown protectors and flanged lugs. The case is reminiscent of the Movado Datron model with lobed lugs and assymetrical case with integrated crown protectors, and low profile bi-directional bakelite elapsed time bezel. With screw down case back and screw down crown.

Powered by Swiss made Hamilton caliber 825 self winding movement with sweep seconds and quick set day and date. Fitted with an original 20mm tropic band for a great sporty look.

With a stunning black original dial reminiscent of the ultra rare Blancpain Barracuda diver’s model. With proportionally large and impactful outer rotating red and black bakelite bezel.

This is only the 3nd example of this stunner we have ever seen. The first one is in the owner’s collection, but this one is for sale!

Recently serviced and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation. Also accompanying your purchase is one of our beautiful handmade Italian leather watch travel pouches, a $55 value!
