Scarce Hamilton “Brock” men’s Streamline Moderne design Packard Motor Car Co. presentation wristwatch in solid 14K yellow gold, circa 1947.
Hamilton's prestige and reputation for quality made it the watch of choice for special presentations, awards, and gifts of esteem. Hamilton produced this specially engraved version of its “Brock” model for the Packard Motor Car Co. in the 1940s as awards for employees with 10 years of service to Packard. These were special order watches and the presentation inscriptions on the casebacks were acid etched at the Hamilton factory prior to shipment. This is the first example of this model I have offered in more than 10 years. It is in excellent condition showing only very light wear. Caseback is excellent and bears the special Packard crest and presentation inscription. Case measures 33mm long and 22mm wide. Refinished dial is superb, has solid 18K gold applied numerals. Has new glass crystal. The watch is powered by its correct 19-jewel Hamilton grade 982M manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.
