    Ser. No. dates it to 1943. The case looks like it's from the time period. The dial is the"canadian" railroad style with 24hr nos. in red. Hamilton was the most popular RR watch made. I read 60% of RR men used a Hamilton .

    Thanks! I found it on Ebay now, its like 600$, but with awesome condition, so i think this is worth less.

    Do you have the watch in hand? Can you post photo of caseback? It looks like it may be a military dial (luminous dots on dial and hands?)

    A top quality railroad pocket watch from the 1940s. What was your grandfather's job?

    He was a soldier in the WWII, and other than that, a horologist:)

    -Excelsior Park
    -An unknown 16jewels Swiss watch

    A soldier and horologist eh? It makes sense then that he would've had a high-quality watch like that in his posession. Take good care of it!

    What country? Is the outside marked? The US military watches were marked on the back, and sometimes with us govt on the mov't. It's a very nice watch!
