Model name : Columbus Watch CO
Type : Pocket Watch
Period/date : 1894-1895
Gender : Gents

Case Maker : Waltham
Case Material : Coin Silver
Case Serial : 4145
Case Style no : Closed Face Hunter

Caliber : Unknown
Movement Maker : Columbus
Movement Serial: 230256

Bracelet : None

Other info : Stamped "Railway King". For all who knows this could have been re-cased or even redialed. I've seen other examples with the locomotive dial. Stories of Hampden copyright infringements with the railway wording could make this one hidden from infringement.

Came with a dozen or so other very nice gems. I'd have to say I'm no PW collector but money will always make someone do what they never thought possible. Shocked Equate this transaction to the likes of buying Amazon stock today at the price when it went IPO, insane!
