ELEGANT~LATE 60s HAMILTON INTRA-MATIC MICRO-ROTOR AUTO

Regular price $450.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A DEBONAIRE LATE 60s HAMILTON INTRA-MATIC RUNNING ON A BUREN BASED CAL.92 MICRO-ROTOR AUTOMATIC. SIGNED 4X

 

CASE: CLEAN AND CLASSIC ALL STEEL CASE MEASURING A NICE 34.6mm NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL SIGNED CROWN BY 40mm LUG TO LUG. AT 7.5mm THICK(INCLUDING DOMED CRYSTAL), THIS IS AN EXTREMELY THIN WATCH TO ALSO BE HOUSING AN AUTOMATIC.  THIS ONE REALLY WEARS LIKE  A DREAM AND QUITE MODERN DUE TO THE THIN BEZEL AND WIDER DIAL WHICH REALLY CARVES OUT SOME NICE WRIST PRESENCE. 

 

DIAL: I JUST LOVE THIS ELEGANT ENAMEL WHITE DIAL WITH THOSE BOLD BLACK PRINTED ROMAN NUMERALS. SUCH A CLASSIC LOOK. THOSE THIN BLACK HANDS LET THE DIAL DO THE TALKING, AND THAT FUN DATE WINDOW AT 6 ADDS A LITTLE PLAYFULNESS TO THIS OTHERWISE VERY SERIOUS DIAL. 

 

MOVEMENT: THIS GENTLEMAN RUNS ON A 30 JEWEL HAMILTON 92(BUREN 1281) SWISS MICRO-ROTOR AUTOMATIC WHICH WAS AN INNOVATIVE AUTOMATIC FOR THE TIME AND WOULD SUBSEQUENTLY BECOME THE HEART AND SOUL OF THE FIRST AUTOMATIC CHRONOGRAPHS OFFERED BY HEUER, HAMILTON AND BREITLING IN 1969. THIS ONE HAS A NON-QUICKSET DATE. WATCH RUNS GREAT AND THERE ARE SERVICE MARKS ON THE INSIDE CASEBACK BUT I HAVE NOT HAD THE WATCH SERVICED MYSELF. 

Before purchasing a vintage timepiece, please see the FAQ page. 

 

WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A SUPPLE CALF-LEATHER STRAP WHICH REALLY FITS TASTEFULLY ON THIS BEAUTY. THIS ONE PACKS SUCH A GREAT PUNCH. THAT ENAMEL ROMAN NUMERAL DIAL IS JUST DROP DEAD GORGEOUS, AND WHEN YOU COMBINE THAT WITH THE THIN MICRO-ROTOR AUTOMATIC, THIS ONE HAS SOME SERIOUS HOROLOGICAL CHOPS. BECAUSE OF ITS RELATIVELY LARGER SIZE(COMPARED TO OTHER DRESS WATCHES OF THE TIME) THIS ONE REALLY WOULD MAKE A GREAT ALL-ROUNDER EVERYDAY PIECE. IF YOU ARE A HAMMY FAN, YOU MAY NEED THIS GUY IN YOUR COLLECTION.
