Hello,

My name isCustomer

This is an 1895 Hampden Dueber size 18s gold-filled hunter case pocket watch

with a grade 44, 16-jewel movement and a 1903 inscription. The value of this watch is

$225 to $300 resale in working condition and $150 to $175 in non-working condition.

Most old pocket watches just need a $50 cleaning and oiling to get going again.
