Scarce Hamilton "Sidney" men's Streamline Moderne design wristwatch in 10K yellow gold fill, circa 1940.
The "Sidney" has a sleek, stepped case and is very scarce with the two-tone dial with black enamel printed numerals. It was priced at $37.50 in 1940. This example is in excellent condition with only a few tiny specks of brassing to the bezel highpoints. Caseback is excellent and unengraved. Case measures 36mm long and 28mm wide. Original two-tone dial is very good, with some patina and speckling from age. Has new glass crystal. The watch is powered by its correct 17-jewel Hamilton grade 987A movement, just serviced and running strong.
