Hamilton Watch Co. 18 size 7 jewel open face lever-set.  The 7 jewel Hamilton is scarce with a total production of only 1000 made, all examples being found in the 2001 to 3000 serial range.  This example has the usual gilt plate finish and its movement is in a much better state of preservation than most which are often found with a dulled or discolored gilt tone.  Watch is fronted by its correct sunk-seconds enamel dial with script signature and is housed in a Dueber "Silverine" recase.  Movement serial number is 2798.

Running and a very nice looking movement with excellent gilt tone and just a few mild small spots and marks.  Dial is excellent with just a very faint hairline below the seconds-bit at 26.5 minutes and some mild perimeter rub under the bezel.  Hour and minute hands are mismatched.  Case is decent looking overall and has a small dent at the bottom edge of its band causing a mild flat spot between the hinges.  Inner back of case has a crudely scratched name and date.  Good glass crystal.

$1000 plus shipment.
