Movement Info - Originally produced by the Hampden Watch Company in 1912, this "Dueber Grand" grade movement is a beautiful example of American craftsmanship. The Dueber Watch Case Company purchased the Hampden Watch Company in 1886, and this watch carries John C. Dueber's namesake. 

From a Vintage Hampden-Dueber advertisement: "Look for the name DUEBER on the case and one of [Hampden's] trademarks on the works if you want a satisfactory time-piece." 

Movement Features - This manually wound movement has nickel plated bridges and main plate decorated with elegant damascening and circular graining, a fully jeweled gear train (17 jewels) with gold jewel settings, gilt lettering, adjustment to positions, a Hampden star regulator, and a split-plate/fingered Hampden bridge design.
