1961 Hamilton T-403 and a 1965 Bulova Accutron 214


Recommended Posts

I'd like to share a couple of watches I recently acquired ......

The first is a 1961 Hamilton T-403 Automatic . I had been on the lookout for this one for quite a while as they don't come up for sale very often . This one may be only the 1st or 2nd I've seen offered .  

It was offered by a professional watchmaker with 25 years at the bench , so the movement has been serviced by him .

 The case is a Gold filled Asymmetric design and I have seen this model referred to as the Shark owing to the fins of the case design .  According to the seller , the watch came to him missing the crown so it has  a generic replacement . The hour and minute hands are original . but the second hand was gold and "all - over wrong " in his words , so he replaced it with a second hand as close as possible to the original  . The acrylic crystal is new . 

The movement is the same as used in Hamilton's Thin-O-Matic models , using a micro rotor for reduced Thickness .

The dial is a gorgeous original finish with , un-noticeable really , a few tiny dots here and there . 

The Watch :







Next is a beautiful 1965 14K and Stainless Steel Bulova Accutron  214 model watch . 

As soon as I saw it offered  I knew I wanted to claim it , so I upped my Max Bid 3 times .  

It is a 100% original , fully serviced watch that the seller offered as a Solid Yellow 14K  and Stainless 2-tone watch .  I asked the seller why he offered it as 14K solid gold . His response was that the gold on the bezel is 14K solid Gold ,....So I dunno ??

Anyway ,....I had to have this beauty , and luckily for me , the bidding was not heavy .

So here it is....
