This is an 18 size Hampden "New Railway" pocket watch with 23 jewels. It's a railroad grade and railroad approved pocket watch, and is stem wind and lever set. The serial number [2432452] dates it to about 1909. The incredibly bright damaskeened nickel movement is marked "New Railway", "2432452", "Safety Pinion", "23 Jewels", "Adjusted" and "Canton, Ohio", and also bears the Hampden Watch Company logo. The watch is housed in a nicely engraved "Fahys" gold-filled open face case that is marked "WARRANTED TO WEAR PERMANENTLY".
