Hamilton Grade: 992B

The movement was serviced 5/12/17 and the watch is running and keeping time.

This grouping is for the serious Hamilton collector and, in my opinion should not be used as an every day carry.

Included in this group is:

  1. The 992B movement
  2. The original bakelite case*
  3. The original outer box
  4. The original watch cloth cover
  5. A separate matching back mid emp. glass cover for use as a display case.                          

The gold filled Hamilton case shows almost no wear and some of the original factory brush marks as still visible.

The original Railway Special Melamine dial in excellent condition.

The original mid emp glass crystal in excellent condition.

Illinois Grade: Bunn Special

The movement was ser4viced 6/10/16 and the watch is running and keeping time.

Housed in a two tone white gold and yellow gold Bunn Special case. The contrast is best shown in the side view of the watch.

Porcelain enamel Illinois 23 jewel 60 hour dial has a repair at 12 and a hairline by 2. I prefer this dial even with the repair over a perfect standard dial.

New beveled glass crystal.

This watch would sell of about $1700.00 if the dial were perfect and the case had just a little less wear but this one is offered at below bottom book and is a real bargain.

This size 16 solid 18K gold pocket watch is in excellent running condition. There is a small dent on the bottom left edge that is not visible in these photos. The case has the 18K solid gold markings.

The porcelain enamel dial is in very good condition with only one faint scratch.

Pendent wind and pin set.

The crystal is perfect glass.

Solid gold hands.

All of the cover snap, but typical of 18K gold are soft and a little care must be taken. The case measures 48.75 mm without crown or neck

We believe this movement was manufactured by A. Jaccard for Charles H. Grottendieck a famous Belgium clock maker located in the Antwerp Belgium. Grottendieck was a very high end clock maker, that made this watch. As he only made watches for important clients it stands to reason that he used the best movements available. 

The most recent evidence I have is that this is an A. Jaccard movement. 

The mark in the last photo reads (top) SAVOYE F&C ie (bottom) NEYRETFRERS srs

Housed in a gold filled Ball Model case.

Porcelain enamel dial.

New beveled glass crystal.

I purchased this watch from the owner of the Webb C. Ball Traveling Watch Museum, where the watch has been on display for many years. 

The engravings on the back of the watch indicate that the watch was used, most likely in WWII, by an officer in the Costal Artillery Command, Charles M. Kennedy in the Officer Reserve Corps.

There are no fees or charges for this. We offer layaway purchasing for buyers that may find this way of fitting a watch purchase into their budget useful. Should something cause you to need to cancel the purchase we give a full refund, including credit card fees, if any, when PayPal allows it, (usually 59 days) fees from direct credit card payments can not be refunded. We do not have fixed payments for watches on layaway but we do request that you make the first payment within thirty (30) days and then make a payment each month. If the initial payment is not received within thirty days and you have not made other arrangements the watch will be removed from layaway. If the initial payment has been made but there are no additional payments made for any 60 day period after the initial period the layaway designation will be removed from all but the layaway page and the watch will be available for others to purchase. If the watch should sell any payments you made will be refunded minus 3%, you can fully reinstate the layaway by making a payment.

If you make payments using PayPal send the money to tgrams@chartermi.net 

Payments made by check or money order should be made payable to Terry Grams.

To make payments by credit card call with the number, expiration date and cvs code. Or email this information in three separate emails without any definitions. If the payment is approved you will be advised by email from the credit card company.  

If you have a watch on layaway please check the layaway page on the website to be sure it is listed there, if not notify me immediately.

Keep all of my emailed receipts and other records of your payments. If a receipt from me does not agree with your records let me know as soon as possible. Things like corrupted computer files do happen and while I try to maintain good paper backup records of layaway purchases they can stretch over a considerable period of time and I can make mistakes, I am a much better watchmaker than accountant.

Watches that are spoken for but not yet paid for that are not on layaway are marked "On Hold".  

If something happens and you cannot complete the payments I will refund everything you have paid. If you use paypal for payments when these payment are more than 60 days old they can not be refunded directly from the original payment so the credit card fees cannot be recovered. Once shipped watches sold on layaway are not returnable, if there are issues with the watch I will repair them but because of the length of time these watches are held while payments are being made I can't offer any return for a cash refund.

Also don't forget that PayPal offers interest free financing for up to six months on qualifying purchases.
