It's doubtful many of these watches exist and they are highly collectible. Hamilton released this watch in 1942 and the company suspended production due to World War II. That's unusual since FDR placed the country under the War Powers Act and forbid Hamilton to make consumer products.
It has a " curved to the wrist " case, a Butler finish dial with. Detachable numerals and hands, a sunken second hand dial and a 982 caliber movement. Reminiscent of the Boulton, a little smaller with a Sutton style curved case. Hamilton's internal design department collaborated with Wadsworth and the independent design firm of DiVincenzo & Arienti of New York.
In 1936, management tasked the design department to create a line of watches to appeal to moderately affluent buyers during the depression. Franklin Roosevelt assured the nation that the economy had emerged from the depression and as a result many manufacturers began hiring and creating inventory. In 1937, the country fell back into a major recession. Instead of offering moderately priced watches with 14/0 size, 19 jewel 982 movements, the company switched to less expensive cases and 17 jewel 987A movements. Hamiltons use of the Elinvar alloy made their movements technically superior to both domestic and international competitors.
The alloy allows the watch to keep accurate time regardless of fluctuations in temperature and, or altitude. In addition, Hamilton equipped the 982 with materials that allowed watchmakers to tune them to chronometer status. This model is in mint condition.
