Very rare Hamilton “Cushion Form Engraved” men’s Art Deco design wristwatch in solid 14K green gold, circa 1927.
The "Cushion Form Engraved" was introduced in the spring of 1926, first with the 986A, and then followed later that year with the new 987 movement. The casebacks of this new 987 version were stamped with "987" to ensure the proper movement and dial were fitted in the correct case by the final watch assemblers at the Hamilton factory. This first case design with the flush sides was later replaced in 1929 with the flared-casebody version, and less than 500 of this version were sold. This example is in excellent condition with just light overall wear to the bezel engravings. Caseback is excellent and unegraved. Case measures 35mm long and 27mm wide. Refinished exploding luminous dial is superb. Has new glass crystal. The watch is powered by its correct 17-jewel Hamilton grade 987 manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.
