Hamilton Electric 1968 Gator Bowl Watch
Here's your chance to own a FULLY SERVICED (ultrasonic wash, rinse, and lubrication) Hamilton Electric 1968 Gator Bowl watch. It is based on the Nautilus 602 watch pictured in René Rondeau's book "The Watch Of The Future" on page 186. It was released in April of 1966 with an original price of $125.00. It is signed on the dial, case, movement, and crown. It runs great and keeps time to well under 30 seconds variation per day and has a brand new battery just installed. The hack function works properly, and the watch starts right up each time the crown is pushed in from the setting position to the running position.
This is only the second Hamilton Electric Gator Bowl watch I have seen. The other is from 1966. They were ordered until at least 1971, with one known to exist with the Swiss Electronic Hamilton movement. It has the ORIGINAL DIAL, and shows NO BRASSING anywhere on the case. It has just had a BRAND NEW OLD STOCK D-PIN installed in the balance, so it will run virtually as it did from the factory.
