During the Art Deco-era of the 20th century, wristwatches were seen as a status symbol. New designs and innovations were well sought after, and this desirable ‘duo-dial’ or ‘dual-dial’ example was no exception. This doctor’s timepiece has an oversized sub-seconds register which was easily read when taking a pulse or administering medication. The dial is split down the middle – half for the hours and minutes, the other half for sub-seconds. Manufactured by the renowned Hamilton Watch Company, this ‘Seckron’ model dates to c1937. It has a jet-black dial with stylized numerals and blued spear hands and white sub-seconds hand. The back of the 14K gold filled case is slightly curved to sit securely in position on the wrist. This is a rare and special timepiece from one of America’s premier watch companies – a real treat for watch collectors and collectors of medical memorabilia. The stepped case is in good condition and it has been fitted with a period black suede strap (mark R 5/8 Suede). The original 17-jewel movement is currently working. Watch face measures 0.59 ins x 1.08 ins (1.5cm wide x 2.75cm long), maximum length with band 9.05 ins (23cm). Weight 28 grams. This item appears in the book, “How the was Worn, A Fashion for 500 Years” on page 256. Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $18.00 USD. This item is covered by own insurance policy.
