The Hamilton Electric wristwatch was introduced in 1957, and was a smashing success. Although many unique case designs were used, the "Ventura" and "Pacer" models came to characterize the Hamilton Electric. The Hamilton Electric was repopularized several years ago by the movie, "Men in Black," which featured the model extensively! Unfortunately, the electric wristwatch technology introduced by Hamilton in 1957 would be challenged by the tuning fork technology within a decade, which itself was quickly supplanted by the development of quartz technology in the late 1960's. The Hamilton Electrics remain as a relic of horological history, a brief reminder of a unique stop in the evolution of timekeeping technology.

Movado was one of the most prestigious and innovative of high-grade Swiss watch houses during the "Golden Age" of fine Swiss watchmaking from the early 20th century to the late 1960's. Vintage Movado from this period are superbly crafted and highly collectible timepieces! Here is a classic early vintage solid 14k gold Movado triple register chronograph with the reknown calibre 95 movement! Movado was one of the first Swiss watch manufacturers to produce wrist chronographs, beginning in 1912, and Movado produced the first split-seconds chronograph in 1921. While Movado was reknown for the manufacture of their own innovative chronograph movements, in 1936 Movado commissioned Frederic Piguet of Le Brassus to produce the chronograph calibres 90 and 95, which are recognized as among the finest mechanical chronograph movements ever produced! Here's the details on this highly collectible complicated timepiece: MOVADO (14k Three-Register Chronograph) - Excellent 34mm signed solid 14k gold screwback case (#A102871/49038) with stepped bezel, faceted lugs, and round chronograph push buttons at 2:00 and 4:00, signed 17 jewel calibre 95 chronograph movement with inner dust cover, signed silver satin refinished dial with three sunken registers (constant seconds, minutes to 60, hours to 12), raised gold arrow markers and arabic numerals at the quarters, gold and luminous pencil hands and blued steel chronograph sweep seconds, lizard strap. The calibres 90-95 chronograph movements were manufactured by Movado from the late thirties until the late sixties, enjoying a long but limited production run until the advent of the automatic chronograph movement ("El Primero") in the late 1960's. The signed solid 14k gold screwback case is in excellent condition, and is signed and hallmarked on the inner caseback. The signed 17 jewel calibre 95 chronograph movement was just serviced in May 2015, according to the watchmaker from whom I purchased the watch, but needs regulation as it is running consistently a few minutes slow per day. The design and function of the calibre 95 chronograph movement is unique, with the bottom push button controlling the starting and stopping of the chronograph movement, allowing for split times, while the top push button is the reset button. The signed silver satin dial is in excellent condition.The crown is original. This is a classic and highly collectible complicated timepiece!
