Timeless Precision in an Authentic World War II Military Watch From 1942

This genuine vintage 4992B Circa 1942 pocket watch for men marked by Hamilton, features a black 24 hour dial with the hacking feature, which resets the seconds hand to zero. The elegantly plain polished gold finish along with its new-looking glass crystal puts this traditional railroad grade pocket watch (except it is pendant set) in a class all of its own. Collectors of historic and war  timepieces will absolutely adore this finely cared-for piece of American history.

The Hamilton vintage gold pocket watch features a precision size 16 movement that is sparkling clean and bright, with very strong running stem-wind pendant set. The open face design of this classic railroad watch affords an amazing view of the detailed dial face, while the fine nickel bridge movement inside effortlessly keeps time with the best accuracy for the time of manufacture. Adorned with a total of 22 jewels, as per the military specifications at the time,  the movement in the old-time pocket watch is truly a spectacle to behold. Movement has been professionally serviced including oiling, and timing. Made in the United States of America in 1942.

The easy-to-read face of this well-preserved vintage pocket watch features a black-out background with large starkly contrasting white Arabic numerals to represent each hour, along with a large white sweep second hand. The outer perimeter is marked with white 5-minute markers. Bright white matching hands adorn this spectacular example of a high grade Hamilton military  pocket watch. Overall, this watch has that classic appeal that collectors desire.

For you WWII collectors, this watch has special engraving on the back.  It reads 41st Bomb Group, World War II.
