This is a ball 16 jewel size 16 Commercial Standard pocket watch in a gold filled Hunter case.

The movement has just been serviced and the watch is keeping excellent time.

Serial number B641542 dates this watch to 1938 and manufactured by Hamilton

The regulator on this watch looks more like a Waltham to me but because Ball used a very strange serial number system and the serial number is for a Hamilton I am selling as a Hamilton, even though I have reservations. I thought that the 16 jewel Hamilton's were lever set but there are always exceptions.

Pendent set and wind

Perfect beveled glass crystal and flawless dial, hunter faces are hard to photograph without reflection because of the front cover - Sorry.

All hinges open and close properly

There is an engraving on the inner dust cover and the cartouche has the letter G
