Hamilton Pacermatic

This is a watch that you hear people talk about but you rarely get to see. If you know watches you are probably thinking "Yeah, that's one of those Hamilton Electrics like Elvis had" or "yeah, its like one of those "Men in Black" watches, but you would be wrong.  This is one of a very few Hamilton "Pacermatics" that were made to replace the electric movements that Hamilton had limited success with.  This watch has all of the great looks of the "Pacer" but none of the mechanical/electrical problems that were attendant with those watches.  Of course the "Pacer" is generally known to be the first true electric watch in America, but what many people don't know is that they made a version with a Swiss automatic, mechanical movement! This is it!

     Take a close look at the "Zoom-In" photos and you can see the "Automatic" designation on the original finish dial.  The case is two-tone yellow and white gold filled...just like the electric.  The Swiss movement (Hamilton didn't make any automatics in America at this time) that was made for this watch and several others in the Hamilton line is a seventeen jewel with a central sweep second hand.  This particular watch has been in my private collection for over 30 years and, finally, I've decided to part with it...although I may shed a tear when it finally goes.  It is winding smoothly, setting like "buttah", and keeping time like new.  The two tone yellow and gold filled case measures 32mm at its widest (not including the crown) by 46mm lug to lug and is in excellent condition.  We have selected one of our best dark brown croco bands to show it off to its best advantage. This is a beaut that will garner a lot of attention when someone sees it on your wrist.  We have only one so when it "leaves the building" its gone!
