Hamilton Thor Yellow Gold Filled Watch


Offered is this FULLY SERVICED asymmetric mechanical Hamilton Thor watch that winds, sets, and runs great. It keeps excellent time. The watch is signed on the case, movement, dial, and crown. It can be seen in René Rondeau's book, "The Watch Of The Future" on page 226. It was released in 1959 with an original price of $95 with metal band and $85 with leather strap. It is definitely "one of the most distinctive asymmetric Hamiltons, with a strikingly dramatic triangular case with curved sides." The case shows NO BRASSING. This example has had the dial refinished in gloss black, although the yellow gold filled Thor was not originally offered with a black dial.

It looks like it should have been an electric, but Hamilton made a few mechanical watches with the same avant garde style as the electrics.
