The evening event is free and open to the public and will include collectors of Dueber-Hampden watches and memorabilia, and a walk through the Dueber-Hampden history. Three different rooms at the Historical Center will feature a specific part of the Dueber-Hampden history. First will be the early years, New York and Springfield, Massachusetts watches will be featured, as well as the start of Dueber Case Company in Newport, Kentucky. Another room will show the Canton era and the watch models introduced during this time period. The last room will showcase the legacy of Dueber-Hampden when the company dispersed to Russia, the remains of Swiss-Hampden Watches, and the Dueber-Hampden Service Department. There will be lectures on the history and a digital story about the Works.
