    Was there a formal association for train bridge men? The signal light and flags? Along with the depiction on the rear would seem to point to there being one. I've just not found much info and would appreciate anyone's knowledge on the matter thanks.

    Illinois/Illinois Watch Co.

    Hmmm... It is a private label and maybe that was a standard practice? Otherwise it was the Springfield Illinois label, or the specifically named versions? I guess that makes sense.

    Waltham 1873-6"M" grade C and grade "special" per the grey book.

    Yes, I believe mine is an 1873-6(m) referencing the article on the differing construction and who's name I cannot remember. The C grade referring to a gilt movement would seem to line up, any idea what other model used grade C? Pocketwatchdatabase has the 1873-6 gradeC from 1887-1889 and then...

    Ball (Hamilton) serial numbers

    I seem to recall, Ball switching to swiss movements after 1925. I think any ball watch co. Marked movements I've seen have been swiss. Dredged up from my memory so may not be totally factual but, close? Lol

    Ball RR official standard hand color

    I am trying to determine the color and style of different ball pocket watches. One is a ball/Hamilton 999A and the other is a ball/Elgin 333. Plum or blued steel hands. Is there a reference somewhere? Did the original manufacturer provide a standard set of hands? Or did ball replace them and...

    Compatibility of Watch/Watch Case Sizes?

    The fob and key were attached to a Waltham grade c pocket watch. I picked it up at an estate auction, he was a watchmaker and I was able to get all the timepieces available. There was no key wind pieces and I assume were given to close family.

    Compatibility of Watch/Watch Case Sizes?

    I have a nice 6s case with a non working lower grade movement as well and am debating replacing or keeping it "original". This is a recent fob I picked up, not sure what the key goes to though.

    Info wanted on a Dueber Watch Co pocket watch

    Am I right in saying that their top line models were $60? At the time. Would you happen to have any idea how many similar models/grade were produced? Or point me in the right direction, so I could look into it?
