Scarce Hamilton "Barrel Engraved" men's Art Deco design wristwatch in 14K white gold fill with original box and guaranty certificate, circa 1930.

This is third and final version of the "Barrel Engraved" with highly stylized Art Deco Motif engravings on the bezel. This example has its rare original box and guaranty certificate matching the movement and case serial numbers. The watch was priced at $57.00 in 1930 and total of 8,937 were produced along with the earlier "Wreath" version, although this "Motif" version seems to be the scarcer variety. It is in crisp, excellent condition with no brassing. Caseback is excellent and unengraved. Case measures 35mm long and 29mm wide. Original dial is good, with some patina from age. Has new glass crystal. The watch is powered by its correct 17-jewel Hamilton grade 987 movement, just serviced and running strong. Original box and guaranty certificate are very good.

Price $525. SOLD
