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.

Find out if a watch i have is worth money


Check to see if your watch or one closely resembling it, is for sale on Ebay. This generally gives an idea of value, at least in terms of resale and value. Watches, other than Rolex and very high end types, don't have very good resale value. Of course, all of the value may be in the diamonds or 14K cases, no matter who is the maker.

Deuber watch co. Pocket watch serial no. 2549465


If the serial number came off of the movement the pocket watch was manufactured between 1909 - 1910.

Hope this tips.

Several solutions:

Needs cleaning is the best possible reason.

Broken balance due to being dropped is second.

I can't get my hamilton watch to open. I pulled out the wind knob and heard the click, but can't find any hinge or any other way to get it open. What am I doing wrong? Thanks


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,

Antique Hamilton pocket watch how to open? I unscrewed the face and see a notch at the bottom and a hinge on top of face. I tried prying upward at notch but it did not want to open. I was applying enough...


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

Case info does not help in dating a watch, A movement serial number helps greatly.
