Scarce Hamilton “Cushion B” men’s Modern design wristwatch in 14K white gold fill, circa 1930.
The “Cushion B” appeared around 1930 as an update to the earlier “Cushion” models from the 1920s. It is a scarce watch, with only 1,620 produced in white gold filled. It was priced to consumers at $50.00 in 1930. This is the first example I have offered in several years. It is in excellent condition with no brassing to the bezel, only a few microscopic specks to the tips of the lugs. Caseback is excellent and unengraved, with a shallow dent. The case measures 33mm long and 27mm wide. Original hard enamel inlaid dial is fair, shows some patina from age. Has new glass crystal. This watch is powered by its correct 17-jewel Hamilton grade 987-F manual wind movement, just serviced and running well.
Price $325. (out for dial restoration - available soon)
