A TRUE RARE COLLECTORS MASTERPIECE:
A Serviced and Running 1958 Hamilton
Masterpiece Thin-O-Matic MicroRotor 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.
BUREN 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, THIS Buren powered Thin-O-Matic makes for an interesting, RARE horological significant addition to any watch collection.”
I have read many postings that claim that the watch being offered is “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 that Rock resttored herein was in fact 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 in the “Super Slender” line, it was one of the flattest automatics of its time.
It and it’s derivatives 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. “
