Hamilton Ventura Reissue Limited 50th Anniversary Edition Watch H244210 #274/1000
Offered is this Limited Edition PVD Finish Reissue Ventura. It is #274 of 1000 of this model issued, and has the original certificate designating it as #274 of 1000. Released in 2007, this is a numbered 50th anniversary limited edition of the original Ventura, with a diamond at the 50 seconds mark, to represent the 50 years. Hamilton made only 1,000 of these in yellow and 1,000 in rose. These were exclusive to the Japanese market, with only 100 allocated to the U.S., so they are few and far between. The commemorative boxes are exclusive to the 50th anniversary editions and are inspired by the original graphics used in Hamilton’s first marketing campaigns for the Electrics. This edition also features a 4-cornered bubble back, making it one of the rare reissues that is faithful to the Ventura’s original 1957 case design. It works great and has a brand new battery just installed. There were a few variations of the reissue models. Some were lower quality, using base metal bezels with plating. This is one of the high quality examples using a solid stainless steel case with a PVD finish. This example retains the deployant clasp and original Hamilton marked strap.
