“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 an historic “Iron Horse" locomotive. The front frames an authentic U.S. Half Dollar. The elegant Statue of Liberty Commemorative Half Dollar was minted in 1986 to honor the 100th anniversary of the dedication of the Statue of Liberty to the United States.
The spectacular obverse design pictures a ship of immigrants steaming into New York Harbor, with the Statue of Liberty greeting them in the foreground and the New York skyline in the distance. 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.
