How find serial number on ~1910 hamilton pocket
The serial number is usually engraved on the movement. If you open the back of the watch, you should be able to see it.
I looked at the Hamilton pocket watch site (in might be helpful if you visit the site, simply type "hamiltonpocketwatches.com" into your search engine and your will be able to examine photos of a number of movements).
The position and size of the number varies but it shouldn't take to long to find. One of the pictures I found impossible to see the number but the rest I found, although sometimes you had to look quite carefully.

I can't get my hamilton watch to open. I pulled
If your watches case does not have a hinge then pulling the crown out won't do anything but allow you to set the time if it is a stem set watch. If it is a lever set watch then the lever which is under the bezel will need to be pulled out before you can set the time.
On a pocket watch without a hinge the case back and or bezel will unscrew from the case.
Hope this helps,

Antique hamilton pocket watch how to open
Pull the wind knob out...it takes a firm pull on mine. You will hear it click, then you have room to pull the movement out towards the hinge. Then close when done, and push the wind handle back in.
At one oclock the lever is pulled out about 1/4" then you can set the time, when finished, push the lever back in.
Hope this helps...george
