Watch Description

What makes the Canton 021 unique: Today, we’re happy to showcase this breathtaking piece of history initially produced by the Hampden Watch Company — the Canton 021. The watch’s dial sports bold, dark numerals and blood orange minute numerals, which look stunning against its immaculate white background. This piece also features dark spade hands with a touch of blue. We paired the original pocket watch with our Machined Titanium case and copper crown, making the piece look even more luxurious. The case features an open back, revealing the original pocket watch’s intricate and sumptuous inner workings. The watch boasts a 310-grade open-face movement with a gilt inlay color, Hampden Star regulator, and double roller escapement. The piece also boasts gold-plated gears powered by 17 ruby and sapphire jewels. To top it off, we equipped the watch with our comfortable and fashionable Merlot leather watch strap, adding even more sophistication to the final product. The Hampden Watch Company manufactured the original pocket watch in Canton, Ohio, in 1911 — the same year that American explorer and Senator Hiram Bingham III rediscovered Machu Picchu. Machu Picchu is an Incan citadel located in the Urubamba Province in Peru. Bingham rediscovered the historic site while serving as a professor of South American history at Yale. He organized a Yale Peruvian Expedition in 1911, and the expedition rediscovered Machu Picchu in addition to other famous Incan sites like Vitcos and Vilcabamba

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.
