992 Roman Numeral Dial "Click" to Login or Register

I never would have thought Hamilton put a Roman Numeral Dial on a 992 in 1930-1931. A boxed set recently sold on eBay with a Model No. 2 case and an Antique Roman Numeral dial. The numbers appear to match.

Best Regards,

Roger, are you saying that it is a box set also? Those hands would be correct for that year railroad 992L.

I have a 992 1st model with a Roman Numeral dial that is era correct, but have no Idea if it goes with the movement as it is not a box set. The Serial is #726071.

Regards,
Larry

I wish it were Larry!! No box with this one. I only
added it to this thread because it is not a common
combination. Just as the one Richard posted above
which is a boxed set and apparently an original
combination. Can't say if mine is original or not
but it is the only one I have seen and all the numbers make sense. I wonder what the A.R.E. for the dial stands for?

OH, I didn't realize that you were talking about his box set.
I have been looking at it and I just cannot figure what it stands for either. I want to lean toward "ROMAN" for the R of course, but just cannot put anything together.

When I get a chance to pull mine out tomorrow I'll post a picture of it also.

Regards,
Larry

Roger and Larry,

I have an old Hamilton catalog and it describes an illustration of the dial on the boxed set as, "Antique Roman."

The dial Roger posted matches an illustration described as, "Strong Roman."

There's another listing, "Light Roman" but there isn't an illustration of what it looks like.

Thanks Richard. I can see now that my dial is different from the one you posted as mine looks like a radial dial. Perhaps when Larry posts his it
will be the third variant you mentioned here.

Sorry it took me so long, but here are the pictures.

As you can see this one is much older, Serial #726071 = 1908 but I believe the 4 foot dial is era correct to the movement.

Thanks Larry,for posting the pics. I have the same
configuration dial as you posted other than it is single sunk. I have some 992's that are older than
yours and none of them have the Roman numeral dials
on them. Yours is certainly era correct and being double sunk makes me think it could possibly be original to the movement.
