I just purchased the 18 sized pocket watch, S.N. 280203 pictured below. It is a 19 jewel, lever set Hamilton with a damascene that looks like that of both a 936 and a 944. When I look up the serial number in Ehrhardt's Identification and Price Guide, it is listed as a 936. When I look the serial number up in the Hamilton ledgers on the NAWCC web site, it is listed as a 944. Also, I notice in The Complete Price Guide to Watches there is a listing of a 19 jewel 936 with a 4 star rarity rating. Could this be such a watch? Is it a 936 or a 944? Whichever it is, was it originally a 17 jewel 936 that was factory converted to a 19 jewel (936 or 944?) at a later time? I am hoping I have a rare bird on my hands and not a mosaic of different plates. I have a rather extensive Hamilton pocket watch collection which includes 936's and 944's all of the former being 17 jewel and all of the latter being 19 jewel. I notice that my 944's have "Adjusted 5 positions" printed between " Hamilton Watch Co." and "Lancaster, PA.". My 936's just have "Adjusted" along the perimeter, just before the serial number, like the watch pictured below. I would like to know as much about this a particular watch as yuns (my Pittsburgh, PA heritage!) can tell me. Any and all input would be greatly appreciated. Skip, that Hamilton nut!
