“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 an authentic U.S. Half Dollar. The 1964 "First Year of Issue" JFK Half Dollar was the only JFK Half Dollar minted of .900 Solid Silver! It was intended as a memorial to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
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.
