Scarce Hamilton “Coronado” men’s Art Deco design wristwatch in solid 14K white gold with black enamel bezel, circa 1931.
Among the most desirable of the early Hamilton models, the “Coronado” has hinged lugs and fantastic Art Deco stylized Arabic numerals set in black enamel. It was priced to consumers at $125.00 in 1931. With only 2,346 examples produced in white gold, it is a difficult watch to find today. This example is in excellent condition showing only very light wear. Black enamel bezel is excellent with only a few light scratches and tiny nicks, no chips. Caseback is excellent, with a name engraving. Case measures 43mm long and 29mm wide. Refinished inlaid enamel dial is superb. Has new glass crystal. This watch is powered by its correct 19-jewel Hamilton grade 979 manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.
