€2,250.00

Questo Hamilton USN BuShips "canteen" era destinato alle Unità Navali da Combattimento (NCDU) nonché alle Squadre di Demolizione Subacquea (UDT) attive durante la II Guerra Mondiale. L'Elgin canteen ha una corona esterna impermeabile a vite. Questi orologi sono insoliti in quanto si proteggono dall'acqua attraverso un sottile bordo metallico montato sul vetro che viene saldato alla cassa e fissato alla caratteristica corona "canteen". La cassa misura 31,26mm, il movimento è un 987S manuale hacking a 17 rubini numerato S553088 H2, che risale al 1944-1945. Quadrante originale con (se si guarda con molta attenzione) Hamilton timbrato scritto a ore 6.

This Hamilton USN BuShips canteen watch was issued to members of the Naval Combat Demolition Units (NCDU) underwater demolition teams (UDT), who were responsible for clearing harbours and obstructions  during II World War. The Hamilton canteen has a screw-down watertight outer crown. Canteen watches are unusual in how they protect themselves from water via a thin metal rim fitted on the crystal which is soldered to the case and attached to the ‘canteen’ crown cap.The case measures 31.26mm, the movement on board  is a manual 987S with hacking, and 17 jewels numbered S553088 H2, which dates it to 1944-1945, centre sweep second hand. Original dial with (looking very carefully at the watch) Hamilton stamped at 6 o’clock.
