Vtg Watch Lot Hamilton Masterpiece Presentation Award 25 Yr Service 1967 Liberty

This listing is for a pair of vintage men's automatic watches. One is a Hamilton Masterpiece watch given to a man named Gordon L. Bishop in 1967 for 25 years of service to the Cone Automatic Machine Company. When we wound this watch, it appeared to function normally. It has a Speidel band. The other watch in this lot features a reproduction of a Lady Liberty coin. It was made in Hong Kong and the brand is unknown. When we wound this watch, it ran for a bit and then stopped. These watches have some scuffs and wear from use and measure about 33mm in diameter without the crowns. No further testing was done, so they're selling as-is. Please see the photos below to see everything that is included, and contact us with any questions before bidding. We have a low opening bid and no reserve price so don't miss your chance to win!

FRANK LYMAN CONE (1868-1936)

"Cone learned carpentry, blacksmithing, and general mechanics on his father's farm. In 1891 he became a general repairman for the Connecticut River Railroad in a branch repair shop in Windsor, Vermont. In 1895 he moved to the Windsor Machine Co. which had started in the old Robbins & Lawrence Armory after Jones & Lamson moved to Springfield, Vt. After George Gridley joined the company and began to develop his single-spindle automatics. When National Acme bought Windsor Machine in 1916, Cone resigned. He started designing a new automatic and formed Cone Automatic Machine Co. to build it. His first machine was a conventional single spindle, but the second was a four-spindle machine that broke with all previous designs. He put all the cams at the top on one long shaft. This made it possible to build large multiple-spindle machines that had the operating positions down at a convenient working height."
