[Timestamp first and gallery ](https://imgur.com/a/gNUO6PI) A beautiful 1949 Hamilton 917 10s pocket watch movement converted into an elegant wristwatch. Fully disassembled, cleaned, reassembled, lubricated, and then poised to 6 positions (all 6 positions maximum variation is about 25 seconds, from the factory 3 positions were required to be within 30 seconds). I would recommend winding every 24 hours, as after the amplitude starts to fall off the timing suffers. It has an alloy mainspring which is less likely to snap. Should be a great time keeper. The balance isn't shock protected on this movement - so no hammering or golfing with this one - it's a dress watch. Should be life waterproof (rain, hand washing, sweat, etc.) The case is rated to 3 ATM but I can't test it. The back has an o-ring as does the crown. I wouldn't suggest swimming or showering in it. Stainless steel case with a black PVD coating. Sapphire front glass, back is mineral glass for viewing the American made movement. These are super pretty considering they were put behind a solid back in the pocket watch to be seen only by the watchmaker. The sapphire doesn't have an AR coating on it that I'm aware of and you can see my camera reflection in some pictures. The metal dial is textured with roman numerals. The dial is silver to white depending on the lighting. The hands have little dots of lume at the ends as you can see in the photos. I call it silvery! :) New leather strap with buffalo grain, but you can put any 22mm strap you like on it. Case is ~44.1mm, 49.xmm including the crown, and 51.x mm lug to lug. A good healthy sized piece of American history. Tons of pictures including all 6 positions on the timegrapher. The amplitude is very close to correct as I used 46 degrees as the lift angle. It's not published, but it's pretty close by observing the balance in slow motion. Price $420, OBRO, in the USA including shipping. Payment by PayPal, $5 by goods and services and the remainder by friends and family. If you have good references and want to pay the +3% I can accept goods and services for the entire amount. International shipping possible by you can figure around +$40 depending on your location because of insurance and having to ship priority mail to even be able to insure it. Not really looking for trades. However, if you have something I could service and sell at a profit I would consider it. Or an Omega Aqua Terra Skyfall - either size LOL :)
