A Fully Serviced and Running 1958 Hamilton Masterpiece
Thin-O-Matic Micro Rotor
Automatic w/Gold Filled One Piece Case,
Two Piece Stem with double stitched & padded genuine leather band.
“Micro-rotor movements are aesthetically much more pleasing and Buren was the first company to introduce them,
they succeeded in making a very thin, very accurate automatic movement by employing revolutionary mechanisms
that functioned reasonably well in a variety of different levels of execution and elaboration.
As a classy example of a turning point in the history of both Hamilton and automatic
movements in general, a Buren powered Thin-O-Matic makes for an interesting,
horologically significant addition to any watch collection.”
I have read many postings that claim that the watch being offered is a “rare” and/or “collectable”
watch, when in fact it is not.. It is like those who claim: “needs a battery” or “overwound” …
Let me assure you that the watch I am offering is a TRULY RARE AND COLLECTABLE MASTERPIECE .
. and that is why it is named the HAMILTON MASTERPIECE Thin-O-Matic!
“The first ever micro-rotor automatic watch movement was patented by Uhrenfabrik Büren A.G.
in the mid 50s. When their “planetary rotor” automatic movement was released in 1957 i
n the “Super Slender” line, it was one of the flattest automatics of its time and derivatives
of the movement competed with the Universal Geneva micro-rotor for thinnest automatic
in the world for many years. The most famous implementation of the Buren micro-rotor
was to be found in Hamilton’s “Thin-O-Matic” line. “
