C. 1879 Hampden Watch Co 18s Pocket Watch Fahys Coin Silver Case SR# 142179I have the pictured pocket watch for sale. There is not much 3rd party information available for the works other than an estimated date of 1879, size 18s from the works serial number 142179. I believe it is a transition watch from key to stem wind. I do not know the number of jewels etc for the piece and no model is noted on the works. Non - running, for repair or re-purpose sold as is. All in weight of the assembly with the case is 145 grams.
Dial - Dial is in VG condition for its age. Edge chip in the dial by the lever which is covered by the crystal ring
Crystal - Show light scratches. I believe it is a later plastic crystal
Hands - In fine condition with original bluing
Crown - Does not wind - over wound, sets time as it should otherwise visually in fine condition
Lever Set - Works as it should
Bale - In fair condition showing wear and tear
Works - Look clean. Unknown if complete. Balance wheel will not stay moving, acts like it is gummed up - it is not rubbing nor is it wobbly. May just need properly serviced, but may require additional repair.
Case - Coin silver case is in fair condition. Front cover springs open as it should and sits at about 90 degrees as it should. Collection of light surface metal indentations that create a wavy look to the front cover. Back cover has one small edge ding. Inner cover is in fine condition. Casing has reed wear and one noted damaged/dent area near the hinge areas
