Railroad Pocket Watches

Railroad Pocket Watches

These pocket watches came to me after my Dad died. His Father and Grandfather worked for the railroad, primarily Union Pacific. I assume a couple were used for that purpose and that others were for more "formal" attire situations. I have only just begun to look at, hold, and enjoy these watches, most of which seem to operate very well. Soon, I will have a watch repair friend look into cleaning and servicing. I will also be researching to try to determine when each was made and which of my paternal ancestors would have also held and used each.


If anyone recognizes one please leave a message here to get the research started.
