A Flashed-Gilt Dustproof Keystone

$495.00

Pay with PayPal or a debit/credit card

 The Lancaster/Keystone/Hamilton trilogy began with the Adams & Perry Co and its construction of a new factory in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in 1874. The middle incarnation was the Keystone Watch Co in the 1880s, whose most well-known watch was the "dustproof" model with its famous mica window over the balance wheel. This freshly-serviced 10-jewel hunting variant comes in the uncommon flashed-gilt pattern, complete with the two-part micro-regulator and a full set of blued hardware. The correct single-sunk Roman dial is flawless behind a set of matching blued spade hands, and the solid-brass case is in great shape with covers that close tightly, a blank dust cover and a new glass crystal.

A Key-Wind Independent / Marion

$425.00

Pay with PayPal or a debit/credit card

The Howard Brothers of Fredonia, NY formed the Independent Watch Co in the late 1870s as a mail-order venture, finishing leftover stock from the defunct US Watch Co of Marion, NJ, before selling everything to the Peoria Co in 1885. This 140-year-old 11-jewel gilt key-wind example looks to be an original combination, retaining all of its factory jeweling and hardware, and running at the "slow" train speed of 16,200 BPH. It fronts the correct signed dial with the factory location on the banks of Lake Erie and matching swelled spade hands. The no-name nickel case carries some interesting numerals with no further clues, but the hinges are tight, the lids snap closed, and a thick NOS glass crystal was just installed when it was serviced.

An American Eagle M83 Waltham

$345.00

Pay with PayPal or a debit/credit card

Pride in American manufacturing at the turn of the century is displayed to perfection with our national symbol on this 18-size Waltham, whose Model '83 was eye-catching, durable and easy to service, making it an ideal carry watch. This 11-jewel pendant-set example was recently restored with a thorough cleaning, a new mainspring, and a full set of blued screws. The Roman numeral dial has an edge chip at the 6-minute-mark behind blued light spade hands, but the real attraction for this piece is the bald eagle over a shield on the obverse side of this warm brass case, complete with a new beveled glass crystal.

A Rare 12-Jewel Edgemere

$295.00

Pay with PayPal or a debit/credit card

The Edgemere line was made by Seth Thomas for mail-order giant Sears Roebuck & Co, who also got their start selling pocket watches. The 12-jewel variant of the two-tone Model 8 Edgemere is very uncommon, with only a handful being reported in just two SN blocks by Seth Thomas Research. This beautiful lever-set example is jeweled only on the upper plate, and is keeping excellent time after a thorough overhaul. The matching dial has faint hairlines in the lower right behind a set of blued light spade hands, and the gold-filled display case has a new crown and twin beveled glass crystals.

A First Model Hamilton 992

$425.00

Pay with PayPal or a debit/credit card

Hamilton's first-model 992 was introduced in 1903 as the company's most popular 16-size railroad watch with a total production of some 300,000 movements before the end of World War I, carrying a pattern that mimicked their workhorse 18-size 940. This beautiful freshly-serviced 21-jewel lever-set example is adjusted to five positions, and has the two-screw crown wheel and gold jewel settings. The original 4-foot dial has some hairlines behind matching blued spade hands, and the crisp Illinois nickel-silver case has a sharp crown, a tight bow, and a new beveled glass crystal.

A Model 1 Convertible Elgin

$375.00

Pay with PayPal or a debit/credit card

 The National Watch Co of Elgin, Illinois was founded in 1864 as the Civil War raged by several prominent Chicago investors, and one of their more curious designs was the 16-size Model 1, nicknamed the Convertible because of its movable winding pinion to either an open-face or hunting configuration. This fully-restored 15-jewel Grade 50 dates from the early 1880s and looks to be an original combination, with gold balance weights and matching hardware, a flawless Roman dial, correct plum moon hands, and a 25-year gold-filled Dueber case with a new glass crystal and a French bow.

A Triple-Signed Illinois Capital

$225.00

Pay with PayPal or a debit/credit card

The Illinois Watch Co's first incarnation was the Springfield Watch Co, organized in 1870 by a group of local businessmen with a startup capital of $100,000. This 16-size pendant-set bridge Model 7 dates from World War I and looks to be an entirely original combination. It comes equipped with 17 jewels and a gold adjusted gear train, and was just serviced with a thorough cleaning. It fronts a correct double-sunk Arabic dial with light hairlines and a set of plum heavy spade hands. The Illinois case would make an excellent display candidate, or go with the factory railroad motif on the back. The bow is tight, the crown is sharp, and the glass crystal is brand new.

A Two-Tone Model 4 Hampden Special

$295.00

Pay with PayPal or a debit/credit card

Here's a perfect dress carry watch - a two-tone Hampden in a gold display case from around 1900. This 17-jewel 12-size Model IV is marked "Special" on the movement and carries a very unusual and matching "17-Jewel Special" signature on the double-sunk dial. The blued light spade hands are correct for this model and the Dueber case looks to be original to the movement. It was just serviced, ready to carry, and is keeping excellent time!

A Model 5 Seth Thomas

$0.00

Pay with PayPal or a debit/credit card

Seth Thomas's first full-plate watch was introduced to the public as the Model 5 in 1893 and continued until the end in 1914, with a total production of roughly 66,000 in all grades. This gorgeous early 17-jewel lever-set example is from the first serial number block, and the fabled double-sunk Gothic dial makes it a true Grade 510, a grade that did not continue into later blocks. The two-tone pattern is still very bright against the complete polished-steel hardware package, and it was just restored and timed with a new alloy mainspring. The heavy nickel-silver display case carries NOS glass crystals and several minor scuffs from 120 years of service. For more information on Seth Thomas visit the Research site.
