Default 7 Jewel Number 2036 Hamilton on ebay

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWA%3AIT&rd=1

Marked as sold, but no buyer listed, so I am not sure it was sold, or pulled out of the sale.

Asking Starting price was $1695, but again, I am just not sure what happened on this watch.

Had a SS "Hamilton" dial, instead of "Hamilton Watch Co."

Thumbs down

Sorry to disappoint the readers but these watch are one of the most overrated watches in horology. Thet are interesting, as everyone knows H was famous for RR and higher grade nickel finished mov'ts.

I was very excited when I hunted down my first example 40 years ago but the fad wore off and I sold it; since then I have had about a dozen of these and they were about the same price as the one I sold decades earlier. I bought 5 examples from the Bowman Museum and coll'n and I sold them immediately to one of the dealers as fast as I could! Again, the price hadn't moved much.

The other problem is condition--mamy don't have their original dials and the gilt plates are usually ugly. Who wants ugly low grade watches that are expensive and easy to obtain? NOT ME!

Someone bought the watch for $1495.00, after the third relisting or so. Is rather unattractive--but still--I guess a low serial number adds cache. Wondered if the dial was original.
