Scarce Hamilton "Square" men's Art Deco design wristwatch in solid 14K white gold, circa 1926.
Introduced in late 1924, the “Square” was the second 6/0-size men’s wristwatch model introduced by Hamilton and featured a simple cut-corner case with a subtle raised border around the bezel edges. This is the first version of the “Square” model and has a grade 986A movement without sub-seconds register on the dial, and was produced through 1926. It was priced at $85.00 in 1926 and only 3,051 watches were produced. This example is in excellent condition showing only light wear. Caseback is excellent and unengraved, with a few faint scratches. Case measures 35mm wide and 28mm long. Refinished luminous dial is superb. Has new glass crystal. The watch is powered by its correct 17-jewel Hamilton grade 986A manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.
