Other: We discovered this Hamilton Masterpiece locally here in Wisconsin and fell in love with its undeniable beauty. It features a professional inscription on the caseback that reads, "Presented To Karl L. Frey, The Heil Co., 1943-1968." We can only imagine the pride and joy that Karl experienced when this watch was presented to him nearly 50 years ago for his 25 years of loyal service to one company. The Heil Company began by operating out of a small rented building in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1901, which explains the local origins of the piece. It would be an understatement to say that we are truly honored to pass it along to its next deserving caretaker.
