    Unmarked Hamiltons

    That helps,Dewey. Anything to narrow things down a bit.

    Unmarked Hamiltons

    John, the 960 Hami's always catch my eye-and I want to know more in that "unmarked" area also if possible. I am unsure about the proper use of time service rules to help determine production. The Hamilton 992 was first seen in 1903. Standards like lever setting and adjustments appeared in...

    Unmarked Hamiltons

    Terry-that "time service rules" thing could help shave down the number of possible movements that are unmarked,right? The 992's first year was 1903 I believe...

    Unmarked Hamiltons

    Friends,I have always had a thing for model 1 Hamilton 992's. But perhaps even more so for the unmarked movements. I came across a bare movement a year or so ago. That seemed odd to me-who would do such a thing? Anyway, I had her cleaned her up over time added dial, hands, and a later Keystone...

    Bunn Special 16S / 23 Jewels and Gold-?-Settings on the Mainspring

    Thank you Fred-very much for that. My friend has Chamelin's book; I'm about to embarrass him into a second look. :)

    Bunn Special 16S / 23 Jewels and Gold-?-Settings on the Mainspring

    A friend asked me to examine a 16s/23J Bunn Special pic of the movement, and see what I thought of the jewel setting on the mainspring. It appeared to be brass, or at least a different color gold from the other settings. He could find little data about this setting, and considering it was a...

    Hampden Dueber pocket watch case, gold filled? or plate?

    Are there more words/symbols? Maybe on the inside of another cover? If not,she is GF at best.

    A Miscased Hamilton 970 (Or is it?)

    I agree about that minute hand...can't see it well,but it might be a bored out Illinois. In any case, the correct diamond stemmed hand would look nice. Dewey ,if you're interested, send me a close up of that hour hand and your address. I'll match color/condition and send you one. PS- I...

    Hello everyone

    Mark if the above is directed at me, I can't help you with that kind of data-?

    Hello everyone

    Hmmm...I'm lost. Maybe someone out there is familiar with this?

    Hello everyone

    Yes-and I've been collecting for over 15 years now. Restoration and bluing of pocket watch hands is what I have a rep' for; but I'm into American pocket watches mostly 16s and 18s. I do have a some 12s, but I admit I'm lost over the "Blaine and Hardy"-?
