Here's your chance to own a FULLY SERVICED (ultrasonic wash, rinse, and lubrication)Hamilton Electric Pacer watch.  Pictured in Rene Rondeau's book "The Watch Of The Future" on pages 140-145, and 197, it was released in November 1957 with an original price of $125 with metal band, and $110 with leather strap.  It is signed on the case, crown, dial, movement, band and clasp.  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 dial on this example is in great shape, and has the ORIGINAL FACTORY CUSTOM “Rockford Screw Products Co.” FINISH WITH UNIQUE MARKERS.  See page 197 of Rene Rondeau's book for more information on this watch.

You would be very hard pressed to find a finer Pacer anytime soon.  As a plus, it has had a BRAND NEW OLD STOCK D-PIN installed in the balance, so it will run virtually as it did from the factory.  Don't let someone else grab it up first.
