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 (dial design featured on page 145), it was released in November 1957 with an original price of $125 with metal band, and $110 with leather strap. 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.
Hamilton had a very few dials made with "Made In USA" below Electric on watches made for export. They are extremely hard to find. This one is nearly perfect, except for a spot around the 5 marker caused by a previous battery leak. The case on this Pacer is excellent, with NO BRASSING at the point at the 9 position. 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.
