Description: Vacheron & Constantin, Geneva, Switzerland, for the North American market, man's railroad grade pocket watch, 16 size, 21 jewels, stem wind and lever set, adjusted to 5 positions, temperature and isochronism nickel bar movement with lever escapement, cut bimetallic balance and whiplash micrometric regulator in a yellow gold filled, hinged back and bezel open face case with monogram engraved on rear cover and Arabic numeral, single sunk, white enamel dial, plum colored steel moon hands, serial #343293.

Condition Report: CASE: Dings; Minor scratches on outer surface of case; Fine scratches on inner surface of case; Plastic crystal; Minor scratches on crystal; Crown worn. DIAL: Specks of dirt and a few minor scratches, otherwise very good. HANDS: Minor scratches and specks of oxide. MOVEMENT PLATES: Minor scratches on plate; Minor straining; A few screws with minor oxide; Dirty. MOVEMENT FUNCTION: Running order (winds, sets and ticks). During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Vacheron and Constantin advertised watches made to fit American size cases (this watch is in its original, gold filled Crescent case), with lever setting, and adjustments meeting the requirements for use in railroad service. The watches could be used in the United States for railroads not requiring an American made timekeeper, and also in Canada, which used large numbers of Swiss imports for railroad timekeeping. These export watches also had a center jewel in the bottom plate, as did their American counterparts, a practice not generally used in the Swiss industry.
