POCKET WATCH

New Railway Model

 

 

Early Railroad Grade 

 

 

 Short Lived, low production American watch company.

American watch companies such as Waltham or Elgin were producing over 60 million watches for 120 years. Hampden was only in America for 5 decades, and only produced a fraction of their other American counterparts. And closed their doors in 1927

 

 

 

The excellent condition trouble free solid nickel case features a completely solid swing out design case & was built by the Star Watch Case Company. It is a full American 18 size & measures 57.80mm (not counting the sleeve, stem, crown or bow)

To swing out the movement, the crown pulls out rather hard, when the "click" is heard, then one can use their thumbnail or case knife at to 6:00 position under the subsidiary dial (see in the picture at left) Also, as seen in the third picture down, there is a tiny "flat spot" on the side of the case at about the 3:00 position. Otherwise this 127 year old rare watch would be near Mint overall! 

 

 

 

All original full nickel plate movement, railroad grade, 17 jewels, screw-down Gold Jewel settings, Gold "Teske's Patent" Micrometer Regulator, Gold movement screws, Gold Inlaid Lettering, early railroad grade, low production movement, still running in MINT condition.
