Very scarce Hamilton “Square” men’s Modern design wristwatch in solid 14K green gold, circa 1925.
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 initial version of the “Square” model and has a grade 986A movement without sub-seconds register on the dial. It was priced at $85.00 in 1925 and only 2,652 watches were produced in solid green gold. This example is in excellent condition showing only light wear. Case has developed a gorgeous patina with hues of deep red and orange and hints of violet. Caseback is excellent and has a presentation engraving from 1928. 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.
