Watch Description

What makes the Canton 016 unique: Today, we’re thrilled to present you this beautiful piece initially created by the Hampden Watch Company in 1912 — the Canton 016. The watch’s stunning dial features an immaculate white background with exquisite, dark numerals, and the piece also sports both standard minute indicators and red minute numerals. The dial also boasts a light-navy hour hand contrasting the dark minute hand. We equipped the pocket watch with our glistening, scratch-resistant Machined Titanium case and copper crown, which go perfectly with the watch’s pristine design. The case’s clear back reveals the watch’s 310-grade open-face movement with a nickel finish, gilt inlay color, and pendant setting. The back of the watch also boasts a bridge plate with 17 ruby and sapphire gilded screw-set jewels. Additionally, you can view the intricate bronze-plated gears that power this breathtaking piece. Finally, we paired the watch with our artisan-crafted Black leather watch strap and our on-of-a-kind Machined Titanium buckle. The Hampden Watch Company created this pocket watch in Canton, Ohio, in 1912 — the same year that the United States elected Woodrow Wilson as the 28th president, beating former president Theodore Roosevelt and incumbent William Howard Taft. After years of dissatisfaction with President Taft’s policies, Theodore Roosevelt had attempted to gain the Republican nomination for the 1912 election year. Roosevelt lost the nomination to Taft, so he split from the Republican Party and started the Progressive “Bull Moose” Party. Woodrow Wilson won the presidency in a dramatic landslide with 435 electoral votes.

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.
