My Elgin serial number site was down overnight. The guilty party has been identified, and will be dealt with in a manner fitting of their crime.

An 18 Size Hampden, 1888

This Hampden pocketwatch is an 18 size, 11 jewels, lever-set movement, made about 1888 in a spectacular 14k hunter case.
Note the interesting shape of the tangential lever in the escapement. This movement is certainly all about the detail.
