Hamilton type 22 deck watch chronometer, with both boxes.

Hamilton type 22 deck watch chronometer, with both boxes.

Lovely Hamilton type 22 deck watch chronometer with both original boxes in superb condition throughout.


The type 22 watch is a huge 35 size and is stem wind and stem set, there is a safety pin alongside the crown which has to be pressed in whilst pulling the crown to time set position. This is to prevent inadvertantly changing the set time while winding the watch. The winding, setting, and safety pin functions are all working smoothly. The watch also has a power reserve indicator which is also working correctly, the watch will run in excess of 50 hours from a full wind. This watch is running beautifully and keeps time to within a couple of seconds per day as it was designed to do.

The movement has 21 jewels, a fully capped Swiss lever escapement with double roller, the Elinvar hairspring and solid balance wheel. State of the art when it was made in 1943.


The watch case is plated base metal with screw on/off covers and a snap on inner dust cover. The case is in beautiful condition, both screw on covers do so easily, and the snap on is a good tight fit. Some small loss of plating to the rear cover but no dents or dings. The crown is in as new condition.


The original painted metal dial is in very good condition with no chips or cracks. original black enamelled stell hands in good order and a very good acrylic crystal. Super looking watch!


The watch sits within a fitted wooden box with display window. I have replaced the acrylic window as the original had yellowed with age. The box is in very good shape and the original time set instruction plate is present although loose at one end, but still firmly attached. The inner lining is all good and holds the watch snug and tight.


The original outer carrying box is also in good shape though the leather strap could use some love or maybe replacing. I haven't done this as some collectors prize complete originality so I leave that simple job for the new owner.


Overall a superb collectors piece in beautiful original condition throughout and all working as advertised.
