1910 Working Hamilton Pocket Watch – Railroad Grade 990L – For Sale

UPDATE: This watch has since been sold but I wanted to leave up this post to show the beauty of the watch and it’s’ movement.

I recently found this “Antique” Hamilton Pocket Watch in my watch collection. I don’t have any recollection of where it came from so I’m interested in selling it. I’ve done quite a bit of research on the details of this watch, which you will find below. From the research I’ve done a watch like this could be worth as much as $400 to $500. Similar watches of this Grade, 990L, are going for that or higher on ebay. This is considered a Railroad Grade watch, meaning it was so accurate that Railroad workers could use them. Hamilton also put a lot of work into it’s movements and they are well known for their artistic damaskeening on the movement which turns this watch into more than just something to tell time by but also into a piece of art.

But for some reason in these ads at the point they have their “idea”, which is generally something that’s been doable on a Mac for awhile, they are suddenly good looking.

I honestly don’t have a good answer for that. I had reserved LordDewi.com and figured, why not devote that to my blog. Maybe I want to keep it a little separate from myself so that only people who really want to read about me can find it. I’m not really sure but that’s what it is.

Now I know your next question…Who the HEDoubleHockeySticks is Lord Dewi?!? Well I answered that in a Blog post on MySpace back on October 5, 2005. Yes, I know you don’t want to go search for that, even if you are my friend on MySpace so here is what I wrote back then to describe Lord Dewi.
