Hamilton "Western Electric Award" men's Retro Modern design presentation wristwatch in solid 14K gold with original boxes, circa 1966.
This award watch is housed in a "Courtney" case, and although the "Courtney" was last offered to consumers in 1960, the case design was used by Hamilton's Awards Division for corporate presentations through the 1960s and 1970s. This example is in crisp, near mint condition showing almost no wear. Case edges are razor sharp. Caseback is superb with the appropriate factory-etched award presentation inscription. The case measures 39mm long and 28mm wide. Has new glass crystal. Refinished dial is superb. Original Hamilton-signed crown is crisp. The watch is powered by its correct 22-jewel Hamilton grade 770 manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong. Original inner and outer boxes are excellent.
