How to Find Info About Your Pocket Watch

The Pocket Watch Database has compiled data covering the major American pocket watch manufacturers and created an easy way to find information using the serial number on the watch movement. Here are a few tips to find information about your pocket watch:

  1. Always input the serial number from the pocket watch movement (the "mechanism" of the watch).
  2. Never use the serial number from the case or any other part.
  3. Always select the correct manufacturer, which is usually stamped on the watch movement or dial.
  4. If the manufacturer is not listed on the site, you may have a "private label" watch or it may not be American-made.
  5. If the serial number includes a letter, enter it along with the number when using the lookup feature.
  6. Many pocket watch case backs screw off. Others may require a dull wide blade to pry or pop the cover. Be careful not to scratch or damage the movement.
  7. Consider uploading images of your watch by creating a collection account on the website. This is compeltely free and assists in promoting research in American horology.
  8. Understand that many companies did not keep accurate or complete records. As a result, information displayed on this site may have inaccuracies. This is to be expected, and we have included an option to report inaccurate information on the result pages so the database can be continually improved.

Dueber-Hampden Watches Price List (1913)

The Dueber Hampden Watch Company flourished in the 1890s as a result of John C. Dueber’s shrewd business acumen. Despite production volume never rivaling the giant watchmaking factories, Dueber was able to establish market trends and benefited from control over a large share in the watchcase market. When he died in 1907, the company experienced a gradual downturn as the mind behind the strategic business prowess was gone. This price list published by the Dueber-Hampden company in 1913 features the product lineup as the company was slowly losing market share. The catalog booklet opens with the prestigious 23-Jewel “New Railway” grade, offered as the top railroad watch from the company at the time, and concludes with a full list of railroad-approved grades in both 18 and 16 Size.
