Scarce Hamilton “Seneca” men’s Art Deco design wristwatch in solid 14K yellow gold, circa 1935.

Announced to jewelers on April 1, 1935, the "Seneca" was in the very first group of grade 982 models introduced by Hamilton. One of Hamilton’s classic Art Deco tank watches, it has a very elegant triple-stepped, solid gold rectangular case. The “Seneca” is a fairly scarce with the inlaid black enamel numeral dial and was priced to consumers at $75.00 in 1935. This example is in excellent condition showing only very slight wear. Bezel steps are well-defined. Caseback is excellent, with a beautiful Art Deco monogram. The case measures 36mm long and 20mm wide. Inlaid black enamel dial is very good, with some patina and faint scratches.  Has new glass crystal. This watch is powered by its correct 19-jewel Hamilton grade 982 manual wind movement with a very early serial number, just serviced and running strong.
