I already have plenty of projects but this one.....I could not pass on.
It is hard to make out but the dial is marked "Columbus Watch Co - Special For - Railway Service"
The movement looks to be a 17j Model 2 from 1888. The fine regulation point is missing and I think the Balance bridge was swapped out. The serial will say for sure but the holes for a regulator whip is still there and I almost make out the shadow where one was. The lighting is bad so I hope the overall finish does not look too bad. If the balance bridge is wrong then I will find the correct one for it. The serial may not match but the watch will be in the correct configuration with the correct parts.
