If you want to know what it looks like right out of factory and how it is running, THIS IS IT!! I have Patek Phillipe, Rolex, VC, Audemar Piguet. BUT my love are the "AMERICAN" Railroad Grade Pocket Watch... To appreciate What it really costs at that time in 1959 (the year when this watch was made), 1 Troy Oz. So, this watch is worth more than 2 Troy Oz of Gold at that time.
Now, we can appreciate true cost of this watch in its original condition and how few people can afford this watch. Now, this watch can be yours for less than 1 Troy Oz of Gold!!! - :- In almost the same condition as you would in 1959!!
