Hampden Railroad No. 105 Pocketwatch, C-1916
Here we have a lever set Hampden Model 105 pocketwatch with an outstanding double sunk railroad style dial. The gold-fill case is a 16 size, and has some really nice detailing, including a Hampden signed dust cover over the movement. The dial features fancy Arabic numerals and original blued steel hands. It has some very minor ships between 1 and 2 underneath the bezel. The watch features a high grade, signed, 21-jewel movement, marked adjusted to 5 positions.
The photos below are of the watch in its current, unrestored state. No polishing or refinishing has been done.
The price includes full restoration and repair. The work will be performed after purchase. This entails proper service of the movement, a new mainspring, and anything else that would be necessary to bring the watch into proper working order.
Once you’ve made your purchase, please contact us so we may discuss the restoration.
Please allow 1-2 weeks after purchase for service to be completed.
Our goal is to achieve what we refer to as “Sympathetic Restoration”; in other words, bringing the watch back as close as possible to its original appearance without the need to remove all signs of its former life. We don’t want to dramatically change its history.
During the restoration, we only use we only use period-correct parts, and in most cases, genuine factory parts from the same time period as the watch.
