Hamilton Electric Pacer Original Black Dial Watch
Offered is this FULLY SERVICED (ultrasonic wash, rinse, and lubrication) Hamilton Electric Pacer watch. Pictured in René Rondeau's book "The Watch Of The Future" on pages 140-145, it was released in November 1957 with an original price of $125 with metal band and $110 with leather strap. It is signed on the dial, case, crown, and movement. 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.
The case on this Pacer is excellent, with NO BRASSING at the point at the 9 position. In 1961, when the 505 movement was introduced, "pat. pending" was dropped from the dial but remained otherwise unchanged. This suggests that this model was made between 1961 and 1963, when the dial font was updated. As a plus, it has had a NEW OLD STOCK D-PIN installed in the balance, so it will run virtually as it did from the factory.
