Watch Description

What makes the Canton 019 unique: Today, we’re pleased to present this antique piece originally manufactured by the Hampden Watch Company in 1918 — the Canton 019. The watch sports an aged dial with a cream-colored background and dark-gray numerals, and it also features stunning blue hour and minute hands. We matched the pocket watch with our glimmering, scratch-resistant Machined Titanium case and equipped it with a copper crown. Our Machined Titanium case features a clear back, revealing the watch’s breathtaking components. The piece boasts a 307-grade open-face movement with a bridge plate and a Hampden Star regulator. You can also view the watch’s stunning and robust gold-plated gears powered by 17 screw-set jewels. Finally, we paired the piece with our comfortable, hand-crafted Rye leather watch strap, making the complete package even more striking. The Hampden Watch Company initially produced the pocket watch in Canton, Ohio, in 1918 — the same year that the Boston Red Sox beat the Chicago Cubs in the World Series. It was the last World Series the Red Sox won until they swept the St. Louis Cardinals in 2004. The Red Sox had only nine runs throughout the six games, the fewest runs by a winning team in World Series history.

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.
