Hamilton Electric Everest Watch
Offered is this FULLY SERVICED (ultrasonic wash, rinse, and lubrication) Hamilton Electric Everest watch. Pictured in René Rondeau's book "The Watch Of The Future" on page 134, it was released in February 1958 with an original price of $110 with metal band and $100 with leather strap. 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. As a plus, it has had a BRAND NEW OLD STOCK D-PIN installed in the balance, so it will run virtually as it did from the factory.
The top of the dial appears to explode out of the case on the Everest, making a very unique Hamilton Electric and a must have for every Hamilton Electric collection.
