Hamilton Nordon "CLD"
10kt yellow gold filled case measures 37mm long lug to lug, by 29mm diameter. Case is in excellent condition with no excessive wear. Original dial in excellent original condition. Original crown, which Hamilton made oversize on purpose for use in labs, workplaces, etc., where gloves might be used. Good condition 18-jewel grade 748 movement sets and winds perfectly, keeps time to within 2 min/day but not known when last serviced. The Nordon was introduced in 1948 and was one of the first of Hamilton's "CLD" series, where the movement was supposedly "sealed" against moisture via a series of gaskets and the fact that the movement lifted out through the top of the watch versus the back. This specimen has a 16mm pigskin strap. Clean back with no engraving.
