Customer Question

I am curious the general range of my pocket watch. It was handed down so though I have tried, I cannot provide any providence. The watch is an 1895 Hamilton Watch Company, open face, white face and the steel hands are blue throughout. The back is worn
but there is clearly an eagle carrying a shield. On the inside the case I can read "Guaranteed Twenty Years" which wraps around a crest that says "Philadelphia Watch Case Co" and has a crown in the center. s/n watch: 74150 s/n case:(###) ###-####Any information
you could provide would be very much appreciated! Been trying to get more info on this for years.
