Watch Description

What makes the Canton 005 unique: In 1923, after years of collaboration, the Hampden Watch Company and the Dueber Watch Case Company merged to form the Dueber-Hampton Watch Company of Canton, Ohio. The strength of the partnership between these two manufacturers left its mark on the pocket watches they produced. This particular pocket watch, created in 1910, features a highly stylized "Hampden Watch Co" label on the dial and an engraving of the grade name "Dueber Grand" on the movement. Both sides of this now-converted watch are equally stunning - a clean white double-sunk dial is punctuated by bold black numerals and red five-second markings, while the intricately decorated movement with gold accents shows through the open case back. Our machined stainless steel case with polished bezel and a moss leather strap complete this piece.

Movement Manufacturer Information

The movement inside of this watch was made by Hampden Watch Company. We call this model "The Canton" because the company was located in Canton, Ohio.

Although founded in 1877, Hampen's story truly begins after its purchase by John C. Dueber in 1886. Mr. Dueber was in the process of moving his Kentucky based watch case manufacturing company, and he ultimately decided to move both the case company and Hampden watch company to Canton, Ohio together. Housing both operations on one campus, Dueber was able to produce cases for their own watches, unlike any other watch company. These two companies together eventually formed the Dueber-Hampden Watch Company. The company thrived until the late 1920's when it hit financial trouble and eventually closed its doors. The original factory building is no longer standing.
