ACCURATE TO THE SECOND.
The Dueber-Hattipdeti Watch factories at Can
ton, Ohio, the twin factories, built side by side; in combina
tion it is immeasurably the largest and most complete concern
of its kind in the world.
In all respects the most perfect.
Every dealer knows how victorious the Dueber
Hamodcn Companies have been, when movement
manufacturers, watch case manufacturers and jobbers in watches combined to prevent the
Dueber-Hampdeti Companies from marketing; their watches and drive them out
Can we offer any better evidence of the superiority of the Dueber-Hampden
Watches than the fact
The combined efforts of the entire watch trade could not destroy their popularity?
The days of the inquisition in the watch business are over.
Dealers are now at liberty to buy what watches they prefer.
But in spite of all this opposition, the output of the great Dueber-Hampden
Watch Factories has steadily and constantly increased until at present it employs
thousands of the most skilled work people, producing a complete watch, watch movement
and watch case.
The matchless reputation obtained by the Dueber-Hampden watches is less
than short of marvelous. The same minute and the same exact care is given in every
detail to any size or grade from the ladies' small size, the No. 400 the smallest moderate
priced and accurate timekeeper made in America, to the gentleman's size, 1 2, 16 and 1 8 size.
The latest and greatest production of these factories is the 1902 thin model J 6 size
watch, cased in 18 and 14 Kt. gold and gold filled, to which we especially call the atten
tion of those who want the best.
