Product Description

Offered for sale is a pre-owned Hamilton “Piping Rock” wrist watch, Swiss-made, probably ca. 2000.  This is a modern-day reissue of an Art-Deco vintage classic that was first produced in 1928.  This watch features a gold-plated case with hinged lugs and stainless steel back, a Swiss quartz movement, a black outer bezel with gold Roman numerals, and a silver matte dial with subsidiary second hand.  The case is in good condition overall, showing signs of occasional wear and some minor surface scratches (see photographs).  The movement is in excellent running order.  The dial is in excellent original condition.  Overall, a presentable watch that is ready to wear in style or present as a wonderful gift to a person who appreciates fine timepieces.  Size: 29mm wide x 42mm lug-to-lug.  Fitted with a leather strap.  Hamilton has a long history of producing watches in the USA that spanned from 1892 to 1969.  Today, the Swatch Group of Switzerland owns the Hamilton brand and is continuing Hamilton’s tradition of excellence.  If you could find an original Piping Rock watch from 1928, it would probably cost several thousand dollars.  If that is not in your budget, then this reissue is the next best thing.  You can own this high grade, attractive reissue of a vintage classic, for only $299.99.  If you have questions about this watch or about my watch and clock repair services, please feel free to contact me.
