The Dueber name dates back to 1864 when John C Dueber began making
watch cases. In 1886 John Dueber purchased a controlling interest in the
Hampden Watch Company of Springfield, Massachusetts. The Dueber Hampden
Watch Company was at the forefront of innovations in the American watch
manufacturing industry. They introduced the first watch movement to the
market with 23 jewels. Today, Dueber Watch Company is an American owned
brand featuring high-quality pocket watches.
This antique style offering from the Dueber Watch Company is reminiscent of the antique
American pocket watches produced in the late 1800's and early 1900's.
The large case is close to the size of the antique "16s"
size pocket watches from Ball Watch Co, Elgin, Hamilton, Hampden, Illinois and Waltham.
It also features the highest quality Swiss mechanical watch movement
on the market!
This is the same 17
jewel movement used in modern Bernex, Jean Marcel, Hamilton, and most of
the quality Swiss pocket watches today! In
fact, even the luxury brand wrist watch manufacturers
IWC, etc.) use a variation of this movement! The movement
can run continuously for 46 hours on a full wind (although a daily wind
is recommened for optimal timekeeping). If you are looking
for an heirloom quality Swiss timekeeper to carry around
serviceable for the foreseeable future, this is the watch
The large Arabic style
dial design is based on antique Hamilton Watch Company Railroad
dial, sometimes advertised as the "Blind Man's Dial" because
of the extra large numerals!
