This New Railway is faced with this pristine Hampden double sunk railroad dial. This was the top of the line dial and for .50 cents you could upgrade from the single sunk dial to this double sunk dial. We have the raised outer circumference with the bold Hampden Arabic numerals and every 5-minute marker highlighted in red. Then we have the recessed center chapter for the Hampden logo, with a recessed sub chapter for the second hand. These ornate dials were made using 3 Copper Plates soldered together, and then baked with many layers of Silica giving the dial the deep rich porcelain finish. This dial is in excellent condition, clean, bright and gorgeous! This beautiful dial is highlighted with the original blued Steel railroad spade hands. This timepiece shows beautifully and is sure to be appreciated for generations to come.
