Hampden 18S 21J
"The Dueber Watch Co."
Beautiful Yellow GF Case
Stunning Dial..LN Movement
RR Grade/Approved

Checked and Timed
Very Well Preserved Hampden!
Serial #
2451775


  Folks, it's always a pleasure when a nice Hampden like this comes in. This one is all original winds and sets like new and has a beautiful condition movement marked adjusted to five positions...don't miss this one!

Case... is a gorgeous Philadelphia Watch Case Co. 20 yr yellow GF case in very good condition. These 18S cases this nice have went thru the roof price-wise. This one is a so nice complete watch I would never part it out. Crown is like new..winds and sets well. Tight original bow. We just installed a new Glass Domed Crystal. Nice original case for this fine gentleman.

Dial... is original glass enamel double sunk Bold Arabic dial with red 5 minute markers. Small flake and one hairline at 5 so minute it can't even be seen. Beautiful original blued spade hands. Really nice, as you can see.

Movement...hails from 1907. Has just been checked by my watchmaker, and needs nothing. Marked The Dueber Watch Co., 21 Jewels, double roller, and adjusted to five positions. These later examples marked like this are not seen nearly as much, and rarely in this condition. Movement is in like new condition as you can see, all snowflake damaskeening and gold lettering still standing out as when new. Running very well.

Folks, if you want a beautiful example of pre WW1 Americana at a great price, here it is! This is a truly unmolested original example that looks to have seen very limited railroad use for a few years then was carefully put up. Hurry on this one, Hampden collectors...Not likely to ever see another 18S this nice at this price.......$239.00

Also features an original porcelain Dial in near mint condition, couple lite hl that cannot be seen save with a loupe, and a beautiful and quite scarce Elgin #3056 Green Gold Filled "Diamond Bar" Case signed "cased and timed by Elgin" on inside back! Case shows very little wear, couple lite marks on back but still looks great as you can see. These #3056 Cases in this good of condition and in green gf are almost impossible to find nowdays. These were carried by railroad professionals who demanded accurate timekeeping. Good Running order. Movement shows beautifully...nice thruout! Folks, this movement is one of the hardest to acquire in the Elgin line, and seldom appear. Very nice package here!

I've priced this one to sell quickly...first come first served!

Look it over carefully, and I'm sure you'll agree it's a fine one, and a steal at this price.

This is the first one like this I have had in several years. Has a beautiful Century Trade Mark silver case that the watchmaker has polished to perfection! Looks like Coin Silver and a beauty. Crisp crown tight bow. Other features include a perfect porcelain double sunk Elgin railroad dial with like new blued original hands and a beautiful nickel 17 Jewel Grade 279 movement marked adjusted and Overland with unusual damaskeening. Take a look at that movement! Really a special watch!

This watch variant was only mfg for 2 years...1903-1904 and is one of only 7000 made...very low production for an Elgin! It is in the same family as their top grade "150". This Overland was made for the "Overland Route" Train Line and is much harder to find!

This has just been completely gone thru and restored cleaned timed and new mainspring as well as a new glass domed crystal and that beautiful case highly buffed and polished. Shows as new!

These 17 Jewel full plate high grade movements like this with Gold Jewel Settings are one of Elgins finest quality offerings..and it's ready for you to show and carry proudly. Winds smoothly and times out great as it should. If you're looking for an early railroad watch that is extremely hard to find, and in remarkable condition this one would be it.
