20 Most Recent Sterling J3E Hamilton Antique Pocket Watch Questions & Answers

The serial number is usually engraved on the movement. If you open the back of the watch, you should be able to see it.

I looked at the Hamilton pocket watch site (in might be helpful if you visit the site, simply type "hamiltonpocketwatches.com" into your search engine and your will be able to examine photos of a number of movements).

The position and size of the number varies but it shouldn't take to long to find. One of the pictures I found impossible to see the number but the rest I found, although sometimes you had to look quite carefully.

Unfortunately no, the only option is to remove the mechanical works and replace it with a quartz circuitry.

Several solutions:

Needs cleaning is the best possible reason.

Broken balance due to being dropped is second.

If your watches case does not have a hinge then pulling the crown out won't do anything but allow you to set the time if it is a stem set watch. If it is a lever set watch then the lever which is under the bezel will need to be pulled out before you can set the time.

On a pocket watch without a hinge the case back and or bezel will unscrew from the case.

Hope this helps,

Pull the wind knob out...it takes a firm pull on mine. You will hear it click, then you have room to pull the movement out towards the hinge. Then close when done, and push the wind handle back in.

At one oclock the lever is pulled out about 1/4" then you can set the time, when finished, push the lever back in.

Hope this helps...george

Impossible to tell from that flashed out, badly lit, out of focus shot!!

This is the watch, PLEASE put full name and model into ALL questions. nothing in your title is the 'serial number' so I have edited the question. The serial number is inside the watch case. Fakers will put something on the back to trick you (they did, you thought you had No. 383)


Onto spotting fakes. Usually, if you have to ask if it's fake, it is. If you bought it on Amazon or eBay or from a guy in a bar, it's fake. On high end watches the strap is silky smooth, no rough edges. Each one takes an hour to polish.



This is probably the only site I would trust that I can find

If the second hand is misaligned and binding on one of the other hands the repair is fairly straightforward but will mean opening the case and making an adjustment with the delicacy of a surgeon and without wishing to insult you - if you have to ask how you probably aren't the best person to do the repair, especially if something else is causing it to bind.

I suggest you hand the responsibility to a local professional...

Tip & How-To about Watches

Changing Watch Batteries
Lots of posters ask "what is the battery in my (name of watch)" with a view to changing it yourself. This is a bad idea for many reasons. You don't have the tools or knowledge to remove a rotary screw on back, or the gasket sealant for a waterproof watch. Some fashion watches have 4 traditional screw and need professional grade jeweler screwdrivers. Also, there are about 20 batteries commonly used in watches, in various sizes and internal technology, Lithium Ion, Silver Oxide and Manganese Alkaline. If you buy them, you generally have to buy 10!

Don't sweat the details. Just take the watch to your local jeweler. They have all the batteries at hand and the tools to remove the back. It is done whilst you wait for $8 to $15!

Often times, we get confused when we finally hear the exact term of website development services apart from the internet developer being used interchangeably. But the thought is broken when you look at this, all your personal confusion can disappear.
