The fourth part of the American Watches auction, offered by Heritage Auctions, will present over 130 lots of pocket watches. Among the offerings, John C. Dueber’s personal pocket watch, a Hampden 23 Jewel Special Railway, is highlighted. In 1864, Dueber founded the Dueber Watch Case Company in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he made cases for the Hampden Watch Company. He later purchased the latter and moved both businesses to Canton, Ohio.
Available in this sale is an early American Verge Fusee style mechanism watch from watchmaker A. Brastow, of Lowell Massachusetts. This timepiece from the 1830s is signed “A. Brastow No. 6.” Other featured watches include pieces from the Waltham Watch Company, Lancaster Watch Co., Elgin Watch Company, J.P. Stevens, and New York Watch Co.
Many available lots are presented in sets and were made before 1900. Heritage recommends an in-person inspection of these items; all are being sold as-is. View any of these lots and register to bid at Heritage Auctions.
