    I've gotten out of explicitly collecting RR watches, but still buy the occasional ones. This one is probably my favorite

    Another watch of collection SDŽ (Serbian National Railways) Longines.
    At the inner lid writes "LONGINES БРАЋА С. АНТОНИЈЕВИЋ ЈУВЕЛИРИ И ЦАСОВНИЦАРИ БЕОГРАД " (LONGINES BROTHERS S. ANTONIJEVIĆ jeweler and watchmaker BELGRADE) They were one of the importers and distributors of Longines watches.

    Very nice!

    Admittedly I haven't researched this heavily, but yours is the 4th oldest one I have recorded in my notes(#101-BWR's personal watch-#108, and #112)

    A few of my favorites, the Elgin no. 270, Hamilton 950B, and South Bend 323 (which I apparently don't have a dial side pic of.)
