Scarce Hamilton "Ross" men's Art Deco design wristwatch in 14K coral gold fill, circa 1940.
Hamilton produced coral (pink) wristwatches for only a year or two around the beginning of World War II... all models in pink are scarce due to their limited time in production. The coral “Ross” with the two-tone dial was priced to consumers at $52.50 in 1940. This example is in crisp, excellent condition with only a few tiny specks of brassing. Caseback is excellent, with a name engraving. Case measures 37mm long and 24mm wide. Original two-tone coral finish dial has brilliant gold inlaid exploding Roman numerals, and is very good with some very light spotting from age. Has new glass crystal. The watch is powered by its correct 19-jewel Hamilton grade 982 manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.
