Here's your chance to own a FULLY SERVICED (ultrasonic wash, rinse, and lubrication) Hamilton Electric Titan watch. Pictured in Rene Rondeau's book "The Watch Of The Future" on page 192, it was released in December 1957 with an original price of $110 with metal band, and $95 with leather strap. It is triple signed on the dial, case, 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.
The Titan was introduced as the less expensive version of the 14K Solid Gold Van Horn. The case looks identical, but is 10K Gold Filled, rather than 14K. The dial differs slightly from the Van Horn as well. Early models, such as this particular watch, with first year serial number 81553L, had applied gold markers, rather than embossed markers used on later Titans. At nearly half the price, it was a very acceptable alternative to the Van Horn. The same holds true today. You, too, can own this fine watch at about half the price of my Van Horn listings.
