Hamilton "Coronado"

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the Hamilton "Coronado" an iconic American wristwatch from the Art Deco period, circa 1929. There is no more sought after 14K solid White Gold Hamilton dress watch than this one. Hamilton produced three similar watches at that time, the "Spur", the "Piping Rock", and the "Coronado". The "Coronado" is the largest and the hardest to find, especially in great condition. This is the nicest one we have ever had in white gold and it still has the original finish (with great patina) on the dial (very rare)! The dial displays a minute track that follows the tonneau shape of the case and bezel, while the seconds bit mimics the overall configuration. Production was very low at 2407 pieces and no one knows how many survive today, but I can tell you it is a very low number. Our "Coronado" is in great condition, showing only very minor wear and a very slight blemish on the black enamel which is inlaid in the bezel. And what a bezel it is! I think that it really gives you a graphic picture of the height of style for a gentleman circa 1929. We Americans needed that kind of uplifting stylistic vision with what was to come when the stock market crashed later that year. This may be the reason that not too many of these wonderful watches were produced with funds being short. The stylized "Art Deco" white gold numerals surround the dial with great panache. It is all original and the articulated lugs are not showing any signs of damage common to this model when abused. The 14K solid white gold case measures 28mm wide by 42mm long by 9mm thick (including the crystal). The 19 jewel, 979-F movement is winding, setting, and keeping time just as it did when it came from the Hamilton factory back in 1929. Our head watchmaker has just finished its restoration and it has a perfect pattern on our timing machine. Make sure you notice the original Blued Steel Hands they are wonderful.  All this is great but the icing on the cake is the fact that we also have the original box and papers (super rare). We have only had two of these White Gold "Coronado" watches after being in the business for over 38 years and this one is by far the best example we have ever had the pleasure to own. Our one year parts and labor warranty assures you a trouble-free purchase. Talk about a fabulous "Art Deco" watch...this "Coronado" can be yours!
