    Re: Your Vintage Pocket Pieces!

    I have been after a 15 jewel Hampden Lafayette for a while, so I am excited to have this and gave it a good bath and a lube job yesterday. She's ticking away and keeping great time. It has a neat, very different swirl damaskeen pattern. The train is finished a notch above many other hampdens as well. The most pronounced thing being thst the escape wheel teeth are tapered and polished. Overall a very nice offering from Hampden. Definitely fits the "gentleman's" watch category, and was probably originally in a stunning case. (at least I'd like to think so). Hopefully something a little nicer than the plain old silverine case it lives in now.

    In an 1886 advertisement listing the keywinders, the 15 jewel Lafayette is second only to the "railway".
    The railway being $28.50
    15 jewel Lafayette being $10

    It was even more than a 15 jewel adjusted woolworth, which cost $9.50

    This one shown was made a couple years earlier than the advertisement I had seen.

    I have a few more Hampden keywinders to find to make the set, but it's getting there! There's a couple I may never even see, let alone be able to collect, so fingers crossed.

    Let's see some more of your vintage pocket pieces here! Have a good day
