“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 reverse design of the JFK Half Dollar featuring the Presidential Seal has been selectively layered in 24K pure gold. The JFK Half Dollar first minted in 1964 was intended as a memorial to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
It is still minted today but rarely seen as they have not been released into circulation for over 10 years. 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.
