winterwolf 97 · May 23, 2019

Serial Number 30654122 was reported as inaccurate.

Note: Dial reads, " Capitol Limited" .... Which in 1940
was the B&O rail line. Could this rail line have
ordered watches in this run? Are some watches in
this grade really railroad grade? The B&O ended
service in 1971.
Curator Response: Thanks for the report. Since the movement was not adjusted to positions, it would not have been accepted into railroad service.
