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

Have a jeweler and a person that repairs and fixes jewelry to see if it can be able to be repaired or not.

To change the clock format, visit the General section of Momentum's Settings ??, scroll down to the Clock Format option and then click 12 hour or 24 hour to the right of it. When you switch to the 12-hour format, the AM/PM unit will display for a moment and then fade away to keep the interface clean.

DO NOT "POP" THE BACK OFF! You need a tool to unscrew the back. You may be able to find methods on YouTube to find out how to unscrew watch backs without proper tools. I'm not a watch repair professional but I do know that if you strip the threads you're gonna cause yourself more problems than solutions.
