Hamilton bakelite boxes "Click" to Login or Register 
How many different color bakelite boxes are known? I remember there was a thread on this subject awhile back. It seems most of them are off-white. The boxed 992B set I have contains a black bakelite inner box and of course blue (and beat up, but with readable label) outer cardboard box. Movement is C134128, case K076744, Case Model A , H.G. dial. Everything matches. The inner box has its original nice and musty blue liner, with Hamilton seal on it, hidden when liner in place.

They are actually plastic rather than bakelite and some 15 different colors are known.

There is a lot of specific information and some speculation in this forum, in Pocket Watches and Pitfalls as well. A search of "boxes" or "Hamilton Boxes" will be quite an adventure. Start with the eight pages of our "HAMILTON 992B MOVEMENT NUMBERS" topic which has a lot of information.

I'll add your set to our database, we will publish numbers in the near future.

Here is where yours fits in neatly...

1945-46 (C112401-C137500) ----------------------------------

C118979 (Case 11) K032360

---------- (Case 11) K041651

C131003 (Case 11) K071205 DS HG Dial [Brown Boxed Set]

C133325 (Case A) K076867 DS HG Dial

C134128 (Case A) K076744 DS HG Dial <<< Your watch Big Grin


Hope this helps get you rolling. Smile

Thanks for your (always) helpful information and input, Lindell. As some of my Southern watchmaker friends would say: "Appreciatcha"!
