    A Few Canadian Railroad Watches - Please Add Yours

    I would agree with you it first looked like a winding click me, but I mistook what LC was saying as it being the part that used in his watch by the watch repair man for the Maltese Cross, stop. So you are probable right.

    Yes I think that is the lever tongue you have the arrow pointing too, or maybe a better word would be a finger. Like I said I have never seen one like that but there are a lot of different ones, so if it works that is great. You can search Geneva stop work, and even see how to make one with...

Then you won't have to take off the barrel bridge. If you do...

    Setting the Seconds Hand

    Thanks Kent, I got some information from a website called Plus9Time and from various Seiko sites. I think they must have had a different standard for watches then we had but I do not know for sure. I have 15 in the collection most for Anniversaries and Commemorating of train stations. I know...

    Lovely Ladies -- American

    Thanks for that Tom, I don't know for sure but It looks like they may have a lot of the Brotherhood marks on the dials or could be ordered that way, from the ad I found. Maybe someone else would know. It is hard to find photos of them to compare. Here is a better close up as well of the...

    Watches with wind indicators

    I wrote " Now I know. It has NEWSOME ? SOLE MARKERS PATENT. I did not want to pull it all apart, so maybe you know what the missing letters are." I see I had a typo should be NEWSOME SOLE MAKERS PATENT. I looked at your ad John and see they refer to it as sole, so there are no more letters...
