“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 Walking Liberty Half Dollar, struck in .900 Fine Silver was created by A.A. Weinman and minted from 1916-1947. It depicts a graceful Liberty advancing toward the dawn of a new day.
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.
