Hamilton Electric Uranus Watch
Offered is this FULLY SERVICED (ultrasonic wash, rinse, and lubrication) Hamilton Electric Uranus watch. Pictured in René Rondeau's book "The Watch Of The Future" on page 191, it was released in July 1959 with an original price of $110.00. 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 Uranus is a surprisingly scarce Hamilton Electric, with an estimated production of only about 800. That is half the number of the rare Altair, so it is definitely a great find. This example has an Original Finish Dial.
