History of company: In 1877 John C. Deuber, formerly the owner of a watch case company purchased a controlling interest in the New York Watch Mfg. Co. [located, despite its name, in Springfield, Massachusetts] and renamed it the Hampden Watch Company. In 1889 Mr. Deuber relocated the company to Canton, Ohio, where it continued until being bought out by a Russian company in 1930. Hampden made a wide variety of pocket watches of all sizes and grades, and they were the first American company to produce a 23 jewel watch in 1894. Productions records for Hampden are sketchy at best, and it's not uncommon to find a model or grade that is not mentioned in any of the standard price guides.
