Hamilton Electric Aquatel B Watch


Offered is this FULLY SERVICED (ultrasonic wash, rinse, and lubrication) Hamilton Electric Aquatel B watch.  It differed from the original Aquatel in that it does not have a screw down back like the original. The movement is inserted through the front for added water resistance. Pictured in René Rondeau's book "The Watch Of The Future" on page 176, it was released in June 1961 with an original price of $110 with metal band only. It is signed on the dial, case, movement, and crown. It runs great and keeps time to well under 30 seconds variation per day. It 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. It has just had a NEW OLD STOCK D-PIN installed in the balance, so it will run virtually as it did from the factory.
