Hamilton Electric Saturn White Gold Filled Original Black Dial Watch
Offered is this FULLY SERVICED (ultrasonic wash, rinse, and lubrication) Hamilton Electric White Gold Filled Saturn watch. Pictured in René Rondeau's book "The Watch Of The Future" on page 153, it was released in June of 1960 with an original price of $115.00. It is signed on the dial, case, movement, and crown. It runs great and keeps time to well under 30 seconds variation per day. 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.
The Saturn is a rare Hamilton Electric with only an estimated production of 2,900. Compare this with it's "older brother," the Spectra, with a production of around 10,400. This Saturn is a RARE WHITE GOLD FILLED model with Rare Black Dial. The dials on the Saturn are really an eye catcher in the light. The lines radiating upward and outward from the 6 position are really quite stunning in person. If you have not seen one in person, you should. This fine Saturn would make a great addition to a Hamilton Electric Collection. 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.
