Hi All

Wow love this dial. I have not seen very many of these full Montgomery dials marked Dueber-Hampden. Are these uncommon or rare?

Open to all comments.

Really nice one Kieth, that style Montgomery dial IMHO is the best looking Hampden dial ever.They seem to be pretty scarce, I've seen them on later RR grade model 5 RR grades like the New Railway,No. 104, and the Special Railway, which is as rare as that dial!What movement is in there?Thanks for showing it, Ted.

Well I don't think it is the correct movement for the dial, but it is the movement that came with the dial.

Kieth, your 555 movement could well have came with that dial,that's a nice watch all around, and not too common!

I have been on the hunt for a Hampden Montgomery dial just like the one shown above on Kieth's watch.I recently found one just like it, except mine is only marked "Hampden", instead of "Dueber Hampden".I've never seen this type dial only marked with the one name before.I also have a No. 105 with the much more common Montgomery dial,not as bold or fancy, but it has the Dueber Hampden signature,most have the fancy script "Hampden Watch Co." on them.
