589c. Hamilton 992B U. S. Military, WWII Railroad Pocket Watch.
This Hamilton 992B railroad watch is 16 size (case diameter 52 mm). The movement is a marked 992B, with 21 jewels, gold jewel settings, gold center wheel, and is marked "Adj. Temp and 6 Positions" as required for railroad service. This correct military movement is also marked "U. S. GOVT." as is correct. The movement condition is excellent with just the lightest and faintest of handling marks.

This WWII military watch is in the correct original marked case. The case is nickel or chrome plated and thin due to wartime demand for those metals, but even so, this case has relatively light wear and some even light scratching.

The original dial is porcelain, Montgomery style, and has bold hands. The dial has NO chips, and has only a single super-short hairline bettween the center hold and the seconds bit. NICE dial!

These watches were made by Hamilton for the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers for use in railway service by the U. S. Army. I don't know total production, but they are relatively scarce and even more so in completely original condition like this. The serial number puts production of this watch at 1943-1944.
