To identify the minutes on these timeless watches, check for black tick marks. For every five-minute interval, there is a red number and a dial with a second hand located at the place the six is supposed to be.


They are known as three-quarter plate pocket watches, as their plates are cut away to make the escarpments noticeable from the back. They come with a barrel bridge, train bridge, and a stable bridge which is cut away so that the balance wheel and the escarpment are noticed easily.


The Hamilton 16-size Bridge Style is also among the Hamilton pocket watches collectors can find easily. They have similar features to the three-quarter pocket watches, and their parts can be used interchangeably.


However, they were produced in a lower quantity. Although the Bridge Style movement is the first 16-size pocket watch manufactured, the entire production of these grade movements was only 380 movements, as noted by HODINKEE.


Original Hamilton grade 994 pocket watch cases and movements serial numbers are noted in the Hamilton Guarantee Certificate, which you may find in their original boxes. These pocket watches are elegant and beautifully designed, and you may find them at about $62.50.


As the last Bridge Model grade, the Hamilton grade 950B is entirely different from the earlier pocket watches manufactured. They are high-quality pocket watches with standard mechanization compared to other types of American pocket watches.


For example, at some point, Hamilton placed earlier movements in later watches. Also, the movement serial numbers are documented to aid your search, so you can refer to them to find out the exact movement of a watch.


There are specific aspects to inspect in a pocket watch when shopping. You must examine them when looking to buy a pocket watch online or in person. First, inspect to see if the watch is working. Note that because they are old watches, they could go off for a few minutes, which should not be an issue as long as they come back on shortly after then.


Also, inspect the body for signs of dust and dirt as they can tell the type of condition your pocket watch is in. For example, if the watch is rusted, it could reduce its appearance and also signify that other internal parts like the balance wheel and hairspring of your pocket watch are faulty.


At night, the best location to place your pocket watch is in the vest of any of your shirts or suits. Avoid placing them under the bed or pillow as they can be damaged from pressure and could also be exposed to unfavorable temperatures.


Expert cleaning ensures that all accumulated dirt in and outside the pocket watch is removed to prevent your watch from getting slowed down or having a varied time. It may also cause damage to delicate parts of the jewels.


Hamilton pocket watches have different cleaning periods. For instance, if you have a 16-size Hamilton railroad watch or watches with a larger size, you may consider cleaning them every 12 to 15 months. If your pocket watch is a 12-size, thin model, consider cleaning every 12 months.


In this guide, we discussed the different types of Hamilton pocket watches and their estimated prices. We also walked you through the different ways to identify an authentic Hamilton pocket watch and discussed where to buy them and the various ways to maintain them effectively.

American soldiers during World War I preferred the smaller size and convenience of the wristwatch to the "old-fashioned" pocket watches. This trend caused a major shift in American watch production, with a new emphasis on producing wristwatch models for both men and women. During World War II, Hamilton ramped-up production of several models of chronometer to meet the US Armed Forces (particularly the US Navy's) need for an extremely accurate timepiece which could be used for navigation at sea. Prior to WWII, such highly accurate instruments were only produced abroad. The first Hamilton chronometers were delivered to the Navy in February 1942, and at their peak Hamilton was making 500 chronometers per month!


Hamilton also used serial numbers preceded by a letter on certain grades from about the late 30's until the late 60's. The following tables can help in identifying these watches. It is sometimes necessary to interpolate to estimate the particular year of a watch.

I find pocket watches in a variety of places, flea markets and antique shows. I used to go to the Brimfield Antique Show out in Western Massachusetts that happened twice a year. I joined the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors, the NAWCC, and they had regular meetings where you could meet with other collectors and buy, sell, and trade with them. I also found watches on eBay, back when eBay was starting, the mid to late 90s, you could go on and find some good bargains.

I have recently acquired an old pocket watch & would like to know if it is of any value. Inside the back casing is Scepter and the number 7573145. The color is goldtone. The workings say Sangamo, Illinois Watch Company, Springfield. Adjusted, Temperature, 6 positions, 150 Chronism, 2349487, 21 Ruby Jewels, Double Roller. To set the watch you have to pull out a lever under the glass face. It is in good working condition and keeps perfect time. The casing is discolored and has no markings or etchings. Thank you,Linda 350c69d7ab
