Here's your chance to own a fully serviced (ultrasonic wash, rinse, and lubrication) RR SPECIAL 51 Hamilton Electric watch. Pictured in Rene Rondeau's book "The Watch Of The Future" on page 188, it was released in September of 1963. It is quadruple signed on the dial, case, crown and movement. 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.
This RR Special 51 is one of the three models officially approved for railroad use by 38 of the nation's leading lines
Special features were the micrometric regulator fitted to the balance bridge for close calibration, and non-reflecting white dials with full markings. Note that this watch has the correct micrometric regulator on the balance bridge, which was only put on the RR Specials. It also has the correct case ring that can be seen on the inside of the caseback which holds the movement securely when the caseback is screwed down.
Don't miss this model of the RR Specials. It would make a great addition to any Hamilton Electric collection, or Railroad Watch collection.
