Ball Hamilton 12 size? "Click" to Login or Register 
IHC Member 1183

Hi:

I have what I believe to be a Ball Hamilton, it is 19j 12 size with serial number B404100. I cannot find any info about this 12 size watch in the Shugart guide or even the Ehrhardt Hamilton guide. Can anyone confirm the identity of this watch and its production numbers?

Thanks for any help,

Barry

It's a Ball-Illinois, Commercial Standard, 19j, ca. 1927.

Total Production= 8,000

Made between 1927-1935

Serial Numbers= B400,001- B408,000

Jewels in Raised GOLD Settings, Black filled engravings, Polished Gold Center Wheel, Ball's Circular Pattern, Double Roller, Adjusted Temperature 3 Positions & Isochronism.

Today we don't know the true "grade" of these watches since they were never entered in the Illinois Serial Number Register.

Nice watch !

regards,
bb

Barry I have s/n B402214 with a different dial. Looks like the same very nice white gold filled case and runs great. As I can’t afford a 16 size Ill Ball so this fits the bill for me. Nice watch.
