Hamilton “Lexington” men’s Art Deco design wristwatch in stainless steel, circa 1941.
The “Lexington” was Hamilton’s first stainless steel wristwatch, and although it has a round case, it is powered by the rectangular grade 980 movement. The “Lexington” was marketed for use by military personnel and was priced at $42.50 in 1941. This example is in excellent condition showing only very light wear. The case still shows most of its alternating satin and polished finishes. The caseback is excellent, with a monogram. Case measures 36mm long and 28mm wide. Original black finish dial is good, with some patina. Has new glass crystal. The watch is powered by its correct 17-jewel Hamilton grade 980 manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.
