Note: I don't believe these would be railroad grade as
they are pendant set.
Curator Response: Thanks for the report. With an estimated production date of 1901, this watch would have qualitifed for railroad service on the majority of American railroads, even with the pendant-set mechanism. The lever-set requirement was not widely adopted by the industry until c.1906.
