This timepiece may have been a collaborative product of HAMILTON Watch Co & FLORA Watch Co., or it could also be an assembled piece with parts put together by a clever watchmaker.

However, its HAMILTON 2987 movement is special. It was only produced during World War II for military watches of the Navy & Marine Corps pilots. It is a relatively rare movement & has value by itself.

EXTERNAL CONDITION: This watch is in *VERY GOOD condition (83-87%): The watch shows what might be considered normal wear by a careful owner who wore the watch regularly. Scratches are evident, but no nicks or dings. May have replacement parts. A sound, attractive presentation overall.​

INTERNAL CONDITION: This watch is in *VERY GOOD condition (83-87%): Running & keeping good time, though may need minor regulation.​

*condition descriptives mainly based on the Timezone Grading System​
