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 "Special Railway" dial is a throw back to the Railroad dials
used in pocket watches made for the American and Canadian railways near
the turn of the century. This "Montgomery" style dial features black
minute numerals along the outside edge, with blue numerals at 5 minute
intervals. The 1-12 Large black numerals are flocked by blue 13-24 hour
marks. It is marked "Special Railway" above the seconds chapter.
Dueber mechanical watches are built to last and are hand assembled in the USA!
