This outstanding Hamilton movement is in excellent working order, with a dead flat and true balance wheel motion that has a fine, wide arc and strong, steady beat. The movement is a smooth wind, starts right up on my 3rd wind with no added effort, and pendant sets as designed.The movement holds excellent time but has not been further regulated or adjusted. As for appearance this movement is looking terrific, with shiny bright and clean, 100% tarnish-free winding wheels, sparkling bright nickel plates, spotless smallest regulator needle and whip, super clean and well-maintained looking down inside, around the sides and up front, and ripping and running strong and true! Working very good, very clean. This beautiful watch has the original movement in an excellent status which was very well saved.
Movement has been recently serviced to ensure it winds and sets smoothly while keeping great, accurate time. Serial number 82380 dates it to the year 1899. Please examine each photo carefully for further details, as the photos control over this written description.

Many repairs will not be cheap, as most likely they will require replacement of non-standard parts (unlike most late model watches). Antique watches should not be beaten or dropped - because repairs may be expensive. Antique watches are generally NOT waterproof. This is because waterproofing was not in general production until the middle of the 20th century for most watches. Therefore you should protect your antique watch from exposure to moisture. If your watch becomes wet it should be dried off quickly. Carefully open all covers and use a hair drier to blow dry the movement, dial, covers, crown. This will reduce the amount of rust. If your watch becomes wet with any kind of salt water you should immediately immerse or spray your watch with fresh (no-salt) water to remove all the salt from the works before drying the watch completely. Any salt left in the watch will combine with moisture in the air to rust metal components of the movement, case etc. Winding any mechanical watch tight may break the mainspring. If you can avoid it do not wind the watch hard.
When adjusting the hands of your watch, move them in a clockwise direction only. Counter-clockwise adjustments may damage the movement. If you must adjust counter-clockwise make it for small adjustments only i. Be careful and gentle when adjusting the movement speed (faster or slower). Don't make sharp movements, and don't touch other components in the movement especially the pendulum mechanism.Every 2-3 years it is necessary to service and oil vintage watches. If the watch is dirty - allow the watch to run down, don't wind it again until you have it serviced by a qualified watch repair expert. Dust will absorb and remove important lubricants and cause the movement pieces to wear down. To clean the case, dial and crystal you should use a cloth that does NOT leave fibers as these may get caught up in the movement. Check with your Watch repair expert to get an appropriate cloth. Keep your antiques watch away from magnets. Strong magnetic fields may affect the accuracy of your watch since some vintage watches were made with iron based components in the movement. Most Cases and Covers are fine components and will not handle abuse well. The watch should not be shaken, beaten, or stressed.
Antique watches generally experience an error of up to 5-7 minutes a day. Any accuracy of +- 5 minutes is very good. The item "WRIST WATCH SKELETON ENGRAVED MARRIAGE ANTIQUE ANCIENT ROMAN HORSES CHARIOT" is in sale since Monday, January 25, 2021.
