New York & Hampden Watch Company Private Label Watches

Begining early in the history of the New York Watch Company and the subsequent Hampden Watch Company, local jewelers and retailers were offered movements featuring customized markings and dials. Typical "private label" movements were marked with a jeweler's name and location.

The following list of New York / Hampden Private Labels has been compiled by researchers Rick Hufnagel and Nathan Moore from verified observations.
