Hamilton Merritt scarce white gold filled version
Hamilton Merritt, manual wind, 27mm x 39mm to lug tips, 19mm lug width, original white gold-filled snap back case, black suede leather strap, original silvered dial with black painted numerals, 17J cal 987-F, s#4339338, winds and sets perfectly,, just serviced by my watchmaker. Includes the original display box. Made for only two years (1937-1938), this model was never shown as available in white gold-filled in the '37 or '38 catalogs, and no production records can be found for them. Production records do show that 7,486 units were made in yellow gold-filled, and it is speculated that approximately 700 were made in white gold-filled. Original dial slightly discolored from age. Good good glass crystal.
