Hamilton Blade Asymmetric Watch
Offered is this great looking asymmetric Fully Serviced Hamilton Blade watch that winds, sets, and runs great. It keeps excellent time. The Blade is among the handful of non-electric asymmetric watches that Hamilton made. The case is thin along the right side and bottom, with a thin lug at the bottom right and the top left, and it is thick along the top and left side, with thick lugs at the top right and bottom left.
It was first cataloged in 1962 and sold for $89.50. As a rule, Hamilton made conservative watches for a conservative clientele. Asymmetric mechanical watches are therefore rather rare from Hamilton and are great for collectors. Not only is the case shape uncommon, but "Hamilton" is placed at the 5 o'clock position on the dial.
