Bringing together precision timekeeping with stunning artistry, this pocket watch by the American Waltham Watch Company is a remarkable work of horological craftsmanship. Railroad watches such as this are renowned for their accuracy, as standardized and precise timekeeping was integral to the smooth operation of the railroad system. Not only did railroad watches such as this ensure that trains arrived at their stations on schedule, but also that two trains were never on the same stretch of track at the same time. This example was specially manufactured by Waltham to meet the railroad time service requirements of the age - an 18-size, 15-jewel watch, adjusted to positions.

Aside from its highly accurate timekeeping, this timepiece is set apart by its beautifully crafted 18K gold case. As most railroad watches were strictly utilitarian, the vast majority are housed in unadorned nickel or brass cases. This pocket watch, in contrast, boasts a stunning tricolor gold case with a charming train motif on the cover. Combining artistry with technical complexity, this extraordinary pocket watch is an exceptional rarity on the market.

Marked on movement "Appleton, Tracy, & Co. / Pat Pinion 2,034071 / Adjusted Waltham, Mass."
