Hamilton Vantage "Model A-82" men's pocket watch in chrome, circa 1971.

Hamilton introduced the Vantage line in the early 1960s as a less-expensive option to its main, high-end watch line. Many of the movements were made in the U.S. Virgin Islands and then assembled into complete watches in Pennsylvania, often using Swiss-made cases. This example is in crisp, near mint condition showing no wear. Caseback is superb and unengraved. Case measures 50mm in diameter. Crystal is excellent. Dial is superb. The watch is powered by its correct 17-jewel Standard Time grade 177 manual movement, not recently serviced, but running strong. I can service the movement for an additional charge.

Price $100.
