My sister is getting married this year, and her future husband is a railroad and history buff. I was interested in finding him a vintage railroad watch from an American company such as Hamilton.
-I'd like to get a wristwatch, but from the little research I've done, it seems that most of them are pocket watches. Am I better off going that route? I think a wristwatch would be more useful, but I want something authentic with a bit of history.
-I'd like to keep it around $100, but I'd go up a bit from that if I need to to get something good. Is that even in the ballpark of what I'd need to spend?
-Are there any good shopping guides? I have no idea how to spot something genuine, with the correct hands/face, etc etc.
