Found this in a box of miscellaneous stuff I bought from an old clock and watch guy's estate...
I've put this in Horological Misc.
As a child I remember going with my Father to have his watch checked, more than 65 years ago. I have his railroad watch, Elgin 21 jewel, BW Raymond Special. I also have a watch card from 1965, the last that he had. He was killed while coming home from work at the L & N railroad. Auto accident, not his fault.
The fact that the Accutron is mentioned in the paragraph on recommended servicing intervals dates the card to sometime after 1960, the year of Bulova's introduction of the Accutron. Wristwatches were first allowed into RR service in the 1960s.
