Note: RR Grade is a no.
Hamilton's Grade 934 was not originally sold as
nor was it considered by them to be a Railroad
Grade movement, that designation is what counts
heavily to most collectors. The "Adjusted" on a
934 meant "Adjusted to Temperature" but not to the
"5-Positions" required of a Railroad Grade
Movement.
Easy to remember this fact, Hamilton did not
market any 18-size grade number below 936 as a
Railroad Watch. The Grade 936 was their first RR
Grade Watch,
