Well you certainly won't find another time piece like this in your travels. We do not know the origin of the watch, but it is obviously uniquely crafted for Ralph Kiner, bearing his number "4" at each hour of the dial. His last name "KINER" is on the watch face, just under 12 o'clock, and the reverse is engraved "HAMILTON" and is 10K gold filled with stainless steel. The watch is in working order but originates from a period prior to self winding. One little gold clasp on the reverse surface is missing, but this does not in any way diminish the captivating appeal of this unique keepsake. Obviously worn with great pride by Kiner, but not abused. Full LOA from University Archives (John Reznikoff), cert. #11072.
