Hamilton “Martin” men’s Retro Modern design wristwatch in 10K yellow gold fill, circa 1947.
The "Martin" was one of Hamilton's best-selling watches. It has a cushion-shaped case with ball-shaped lugs and was priced at $47.50 in 1947. This example is in excellent condition showing only a tiny amount of brassing to the tops of the lugs. Caseback is excellent and unengraved, with a small ding. The case measures 35mm long and 27mm wide. Refinished dial is superb, has solid 18K gold applied numerals. Has new glass crystal. This watch is powered by its correct 17-jewel Hamilton grade 987A manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.
