Note: This watch was appraised by a professional watch
repair person who says it is railroad grade and
was made in 1927
Curator Response: Unfortunately, this watch would not have qualified for railroad service at the time of production. Listed production years are estimates, typically accurate within +/-3 years. There are no surviving production ledgers available for South Bend, so all production dates are purely estimates, though most sources do not indicate this as such.
