Hamilton Electric Savitar II Custom Black Dial Watch
Offered is this FULLY SERVICED (ultrasonic wash, rinse, and lubrication) Hamilton Electric Savitar II watch. Pictured in René Rondeau's book "The Watch Of The Future" on page 155, it was released in with an original price of $125 with metal band, and $110 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. 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.
The Savitar II is the cousin to the original Savitar. It is gold filled rather than solid gold like the Savitar and lacks the reeding around the crystal found in the Savitar. The Savitar II also has a one piece case with the movement coming out through the crystal. This example has had the dial refinished in gloss black. It was not offered with a black dial, but looks excellent with this custom refinish
