Hamilton Grade: 950E

This is the closest to mint I have ever seen in the 950E model. It is so pristine I was actually hesitant about servicing it. For an 80 year old watch I would have to call it mint condition for any watch that was ever even lightly carried.

I am nearly certain that everything on this watch is original, even the Mid Emp. glass crystal, which is perfect.

The watch does have the newer alloy mainspring and from what I can see was only serviced once before now.

Serviced 10/16/17 and running and keeping time.

Perfect and absolutely correct porcelain enamel dial.

Perfect Mid. Emp. glass crystal.

Gold filled "Bar Over Crown" case in excellent condition showing no wear other than smoothing of factory brush marks on the case back.

The movement was serviced 2/3/16 and the watch is running and keeping time.

Housed in a Beautiful Ball Model 14 WKGF case.

Porcelain enamel dial.

New old stock glass crystal.

This watch qualifies as "MINT" and if not for the inscription inside the back cover would be priced at $4500.00 or more.

I doubt this was was carried more than a couple of times.

That inscription reads Roy Lickman and RL are probably the initials on the back cover cartouche although they could be almost anything.
