Gentlemen of the forum,
I have just bought my FIRST EVER railroad pocket watch!
The dial says:BALL
Offical RR Standard
ClevelandThe movement says:
The Ball Company.
Adjusted temperature and isochronism.
6 Position Adjustments.
The dial has a couple of hairlines, but other than that, the watch (and the gold-filled case), is in perfect condition and runs like a top. I'll be sending it to my watchmaker tomorrow, just as a matter of precaution.
It's lever-set and stem-wind.
It was $160!!
Please tell me this thing is real and that it's a genuine railroad watch and that I haven't been duped...I'm as high as a kite...
