I have recently started collecting 70's and 80's watches and my father has now become interested in vintage pocketwatches.
My mother asked me to get him a watch for his birthday so I picked up a "railroad" watch as he had expressed an interest.
I don't know anything about pocket watches so would appreciate any comments on what I bought. I would like to know of any distinctions between being railroad accurate, or approved etc etc etc
Here are some pics! I would appreciate comments on the case engraving. Not sure when it was done! I guess it could be more recent???
The following is all the info I got on the watch:
ANTIQUE ELGIN ILL. B.W. RAYMOND POCKET WATCH. WATCH MEASURES APPROXIMATELY: 2 3/16" IN DIAMETER. WATCH INSIDE READS: ELLGIN NAT'L WATCH CO. SAFETY PINION. # 3267243 (1888). CASE READS: NICKEL SILVER
