Description

This is an Illinois ROCKLIFFE model wristwatch. It has an excellent unpolished YG case and an outstanding original dial with etched gold raised numerals.

This ROCKLIFFE version was issued by Hamilton from approximately 1934 to 1936 to try to exhaust the remaining 18/0 size Illinois movements in inventory. For this reason, this ROCKLIFFE version does not have subsidiary seconds. This ROCKLIFFE example is more difficult to locate than the one with subsidiary seconds.

This particular watch was on display in the Farrell and Ann Gay Springfield Industry Museum Collection.

Its 18/0 size,15j movement is running fine and is guaranteed for one year plus ten days.
