    Pocker Watch - 0 - 40 Up-Down?

    I've run across a couple of pocket watches with a 2nd sub-dial that reads 0-40 Up-Down. What is this?

    Thank you. Was that a feature only on American Railroad Grade pocket watches, or did others have that as well?

    You can find it on Swiss and German deck chronometers and pocket watches, IIRC on some English ones as well.

    I'm sorry, my question referred to other American non-rail road grade pocket watches.

    Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.

    I was seriously considering buying one until someone mentioned that these movements won't have modern shock protection. Not that big a deal for a pocket watch, but for a wristwatch I'm thinking it kinda is.

    Front of the case is hinged so you can access the setting lever.
