It's debatable whether or not Hamilton's iconic 992 is the single best railroad watch of the era, but it's certainly in the top five. Regardless of the argument, it became the factory's 16-size workhorse in 1903 and was eventually produced in four distinct lever-set variants. Don't miss out on a completely original example that survived the Great Depression intact.

The Hamilton Co was incorporated in 1892 from the remnants of the Adams & Perry, Lancaster, Keystone, and Aurora companies, named for the Scottish attorney who founded the Pennsylvania town of Lancaster, where the original factory was located. They had a single goal in mind - to produce the best railroad watches of the era, and they succeeded. Their flagship grade in their 16-size family was the 21-jewel 992, first introduced in 1903 in a pattern matching the 940, its 18-size counterpart. This fully restored example is a 2nd-model example with pinstripes, which debuted in 1914 and continued for some 20 years. It's an original combination with everything matching and correct, right down to its factory dust band. The bold Arabic dial is snow-white behind a correct set of blued spade hands and the gold-filled Wadsworth bar-over-crown Model 2 case in delicious condition with a marked crown, a tight bow, and a new beveled glass crystal. Matching lanyard and display stand included.
