Here's your chance to own a FULLY SERVICED (ultrasonic wash, rinse, and lubrication) Hamilton Electric Nautilus 403 pocket watch. Pictured in Rene Rondeau's book "The Watch Of The Future" on page181, it was released with an original price of $130.00. It is quadruple signed on the dial, case, movement, and crown. It runs great and keeps time to well under 30 seconds variation per day, and has a brand new battery just installed. The hack function works properly, and the watch starts right up each time the crown is pushed in from the setting position to the running position.
The Nautilus 403 was Hamilton's only release of an electric pocket watch. It was not popular, so only around 500 were made, making it an extremely rare find. This example has had some work done on the caseback to remove an engraving. It is still very presentable, and would make a great addition to a Hamilton Electric collection.
