In 1884 the Seth Thomas Clock Co., Thomaston, CT, built an addition to its existing factory on the corner of Marine and Bridge streets within which to manufacture pocket watches. The first watches were available for sale in 1885. For the next thirty years, a full line of Seth Thomas watches were available in 0, 4, 6, 12, 16 and 18 size. By 1914, the company had decided to concentrate on the clock business and the last watches ceased appearing in the company's catalogs in the Fall of 1915.
This Seth Thomas pocket watch was made in 1907. The case is yellow gold filled and the engraving is still pretty crisp! The porcelain dial has Roman Numerals and is in perfect condition, displaying a second bit at the six o'clock position. It also has the additional feature of being lever set. The seven jewel movement has two-tone plates with a gold starburst pattern centering on some interesting concentric damaskeening. Since Seth Thomas only made pocket watches for about 30 years there are not a great deal of them extant..and this is a particularly nice six size that was lovingly cared for over its 106 year lifetime. This is what we call a crossover size that can be carried by either a man or a woman. Our master watchmakers have the seven jewel, two tone movement, ticking just like it did back in 1907 so that it can spend another lifetime in your pocket. Remember all of our timepieces come with our famous one year warranty for parts and labor. It could be yours...don't miss it!
