Gorgeous 23J 950-B Hamilton Pocket Watch. This watch runs and functions just exactly as it should. The original Hamilton case actually has a little bit of the factory finish lines left on the case. This case is gorgeous and shows no wear, it is truly a 9.8 out of 10. The movement is in great condition with no damage or rust. The dial has a few light spots but over all it is in nice condition as well, I have removed the bezel and took a close up photo of the dial and hands. Very nice original Bakelite box that the watch came in, these are very difficult to find and it adds a nice touch to this rare collectors item.

I machined brass pins and then drilled and taped threads to accept the screws and tap. Works great perfect fit looking forward for the next course Doug. Comment from e bayer who made one , I made one of these per your info. It worked fine on a 16 size pocket watch back cover. However it didn’t work as well on the case itself.. One problem is that sometimes the 4-40 screws bottom before the tap. I suggest replacing them with unthreaded plastic posts. Don’t know if that will help but I will try that next. When using on the case body threads The tap and the 4-40 screws don’t fit between the threads and the stem holder. I plan to grind off one of the three legs of the tap so it will fit between the case body threads and either replace the 4-40 screws with unthreaded posts or grind one side of the screws so they will pass between the case threads and the stem. Another thing is the quality of the case opener. There is a lot of slop in the bit holders. The 4-40 tap should be in the bit holder closest to the handle. That one has the least slop especially in the in/out direction. Also the 2 plates of the case opener are held apart by 4 spacers. If you shorten the spacers for a tighter fit, that will reduce the slop. If the tap leans away from the threads that will cause it to remove more material from the top threads and less from the threads near the bottom. This could be why you couldn’t screw the case back all the way down. Keeping the tap more vertical will help that. Also in the past when I had a case back or bezel that was tight or felt rough I put a bit of Wenol or polishing paste on the case threads and then put the case back or bezel back on. Then as I watched TV I would screw them together and twist them back and for through the range of the fit until it felt smooth. This method removes material where there is interference.

1920 Hamilton 900 12s 19j pocket watch w/ a Hamilton 14k solid gold swing-out case with serial #1881354. Let me say that I’m far from a pocket watch expert, so please read my description. Perhaps I’m doing something incorrectly, but sometimes when I set this watch, the crown just turns without moving the hands. Other times it works fine. When winding the watch, the wind is a tighter wind than normal. The watch is currently running (not tested for accuracy). Also, there is a crack in the crystal by the “1” and 2. As I said, the case is a swing-out case and is made of solid 14k gold. There is a large monogram on the back of the case. The total weight of the watch is 61.1 grams. The movement is clean.

Engraved On The Movement G C T. With hack function working! Included is the Rare Wood Navy Aircraft watch case with glass intact as pictured!!!! WWII 4992B Pocket Watch History. During World War II, Hamilton produced a variety of time pieces to support the war effort. In fact, all of Hamilton’s production was dedicated to defense purposes. However, they did still produce some wrist watches using excess movements produced in the 1920’s. One of the war-related watches was a pocket watch with a central sweep second hand. The movement was based on the 21 jewel, 16 size 992B movement. However, an extra jewel was added to support the second hand pinion, so the movement got 22 jewels and was called the 4992B. The 4992B is known as a “Navigator’s Watch” as it was used by aviators to aid in navigation by the US Navy during the war. Here’s a couple of advertisements from WWII-era Life Magazines that featured the 4992B. You’ll often see 4992B’s in a case or a box that was intended to isolate it and protect it from shocks or accidental damage. If you look closely at the dial, you’ll see that it’s a 24 hour dial so it takes a full day for the hour hand to make a full rotation. 12:00 noon on a 24 hour dial looks like 6:00 on a 12-hour dial. The minute hand still makes it around the dial in one hour, so the ratio of the minute hand to the hour hand is modified using a different minute wheel and hour wheel ratio. Another interesting aspect to the 4992B is it “hacks” or stops when you pull out the crown to set the time. This allows you to set a very precise time… The old, “synchronize your watches” phrase comes to mind.
