    Hamilton Pocket Watch

    I have a very nice pocket watch my father used to use. It's still in the original box, it runs and according to the card in the lid, it originally cost $54.00, the Movement No. is 3313009, is Grade No. 912, and it's in Case No.63338. I had it cleaned up about 35 years ago and it still seems to run fine. Should I have some maintenance done to it, when was it manufactured, it's value and any other pertinent information that I should know. I tried to open the case to get additional information but don't have a proper tool.

    Thanks for any help-Roger B.

    It should be serviced. In the links and articles section at the top on this forum there is an article on how to open pocket watches it's worth a read. You also might want to look at the other resources there there's a lot of good information.

    Hey Roger,

    A watch that hasn't been serviced in 35 years is certainly ready to be serviced again. Don't run it again until it's been to, and come back from, the watchmaker.

    If the serial number for the movement is correct, your watch was made in 1938.

    Very nice; I like how the chain complements the bezel edging.

    That looks almost just like my (my grandfather's) grade 916! According to my reference, I think the movement dates to 1926. The watch & chain both look very nice. The edge is a different design, but the dials are the same.

    Here's mine...
