Hamilton World War II Military Hacking 2987 Watch


This is a great looking Hamilton Hacking 2987 Military watch that winds, sets, and runs great. It keeps excellent time. They were made for military use around 1943 to 1945, and only approximately 3000 were made. Obviously, a lot of this number did not survive the hard use they encountered. It differs from a normal 987 in that it has a center seconds hand, 18 Jewels, and the hacking feature, which stops the seconds hand when the crown is in the setting position. The hacking feature allowed watches to be set in unison with other watches right down to the second, which was often important in military operations.
