“All Aboard!" The conductor checking his Railroad Watch as the train begins to move is a nostalgic scene from America's past. “Railroad Watches" first appeared at the end of the 19th century when, to avoid scheduling errors, standards for timepieces were established for all railroads.
This familiar and romantic image is captured in the design of our beautiful Silvertone Railroad Pocket Watch. The back of the hinged case features a highly detailed relief sculpture of a historic “Iron Horse" locomotive. The front frames the authentic U.S. Half Dollar.
The Silver Barber Half Dollar, struck in .900 Fine Silver was designed by chief engraver of the U.S. Mint Charles E. Barber and was minted from 1892-1915. The obverse design features the head of Liberty.
This half dollar is then lavishly layered in pure 24k Gold. The design is steeped in history, but the watch's quartz movement is state-of-the-art. It includes a 14 inch FOB chain along with a Certificate of Authenticity and a one-year warranty.
