Hamilton “Drake” men’s Art Deco design wristwatch in 10K white fill, circa 1935.
The “Drake” has a large stepped case, and was priced to consumers at $40.00 in 1935. It is much scarcer in white than yellow, with only 4,121 watches produced in white gold fill. This example is in crisp, excellent condition with only a faint hint of brassing to the edges of the lugs. Caseback is superb and unengraved. The case measures 42mm long and 27mm wide. Dial has been restored to its correct original appearance with a silver Butler finish and luminous numerals. Has new glass crystal. The watch is powered by its correct 17 jewel Hamilton grade 987-F movement.
