Hamilton "Courtney Masterpiece" men's Retro Modern design presentation wristwatch in solid 14K gold, circa 1970.
The "Courtney" is a large square watch with a heavy gold case and through the early 1970s was often used by Hamilton's Awards Division for corporate presentations. This example is in crisp, near mint condition showing no wear. The watch appears to have been worn only a few times, and then put away for 50 years. Case edges are razor sharp. Caseback is superb with the appropriate factory-etched award presentation inscription and all of its factory-brushed finish. The case measures 39mm long and 28mm wide. Glass crystal is superb. Original 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.
