Vantage Electric 130E By Hamilton Dive Watch
Offered is this FULLY SERVICED (ultrasonic wash, rinse, and lubrication) Hamilton-Vantage Electric Dive watch. Covered in René Rondeau's book "The Watch Of The Future" on pages 95-96, it was released as a solution to compete with low cost imports under a different name, Vantage. It runs great and keeps time to well under 30 seconds variation per day. The watch 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 BRAND NEW OLD STOCK D-PIN installed in the balance, so it will run virtually as it did from the factory.
Hamilton never made a dive version of the Hamilton Electric with rotating bezel, so this Vantage is an interesting part of the Hamilton Electric history.
