Pocket Watch Database

We noticed that you entered a relatively short serial number.
"7257" could possibly indicate the grade of the watch and not the serial number of your movement. Serial numbers are usually more than a few digits.

Due to the lack of existing factory records, our Tremont Watch Co. database has been reconstructed using observations of known watches.
As a result, the information may contain inaccuracies. Please let us know if you have details that can improve the database.

Serial Number 6981 was reported as inaccurate.

Note: Yes the date of the watch. The Tremont Watch Co.
went out of business and was moved to Melrose MA.
and the movements were changed to Melrose Watch
Co. in 1866. The movement 6981 was part of the run
that was made in May of 1865. Total watch
movements made up to 1866 was 14000.
Curator Response: There were "Tremont" marked movements that were manufactured even after the transition to Melrose. Care to provide an original source for the May 1865 date?
