Very scarce Hamilton "Donavan" men's Retro Modern design wristwatch in solid 14K yellow gold, circa 1955.
The "Donavan" is one of the largest and heaviest solid gold models that Hamilton produced in the 1950s. It was priced at $150.00 in 1955 and is quite scarce. This is the first I have offered in many years. This example is in excellent condition showing only light wear. Caseback is excellent and unengraved, with some faint scratches. Case measures 43mm long and 30mm wide. Refinished two-tone dial is excellent, has solid 18K gold applied markers. Has new acrylic crystal. The watch is powered by its correct 22-jewel Hamilton grade 770 manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.
