This is a great looking Hamilton Huguenin Electric watch. The Landeron 4750, was the first Swiss Electric movement, introduced in 1961. They sold the movement to many watch companies to install under the company's name. It sets, and runs great, and keeps excellent time, and will come with a brand new battery freshly installed. The watch has a large size case, so goes well with today's fashion of larger watches. The best theory for this curious rarity is that after Hamilton's purchase of Huguenin in 1959, they allowed Huguenin to continue running operations in Switzerland. Henry Huguenin decided to produce an electric watch using an electric movement more familar and local to his company. The rarity of this watch suggests that the effort was short lived, possibly because Hamilton did not want to confuse the public as to the movement contained in a Hamilton Electric watch. Regardless of the story behind the watch, it is an extremely hard find, and very sought after by collectors.
These were futuristic watches, and the watch companies certainly did their best to capitalize on their uniqueness. This would be a great watch to add to a vintage Electric Watch collection.
