Very scarce Hamilton “Raleigh Engraved” men’s Art Deco design wristwatch in 14K yellow gold fill, circa 1929.
This is the first version of the “Raleigh Engraved” and it has an Art Deco stylized keystone pattern engraved on the bezel. Normally found in white or sometimes green, the yellow version of the "Raleigh" is very scarce, with only 1,070 watches sold. This is only the second example I have offered in 20 years. It is in excellent condition with only very light brassing to the bezel corners. The caseback is excellent and unengraved. The case measures 39mm long and 29mm wide. Refinished luminous dial is superb. Has new glass crystal. The watch is powered by its correct 17-jewel Hamilton grade 987-F manual wind movement, just serviced and running well.
