Hamilton Electric Polaris II 14K Watch "To A Craftsman"
Offered is this FULLY SERVICED (ultrasonic wash, rinse, and lubrication) Solid 14K Gold Hamilton Electric Polaris II watch. Pictured in René Rondeau's book "The Watch Of The Future" on page 152, it was released in February of 1965 with an original price of $150.00. 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.
The Polaris II is much more scarce than the original Polaris, with an estimated production of only about 1000 total. This is an excellent example with a fine case and original dial. It is engraved by the Hamilton Factory just as factory employee award watches were engraved, and given to an employee of Wallace Silversmiths, a subsidiary of Hamilton it purchased in 1959. 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. These do not come around often.
