These are not only interesting dials, but they are often on very interesting movements. Can you share movement photos with us as well? Many of the ’92 model Railroaders have a pinwheel damaskeening pattern. But there is also an interesting assortment of Walthams that have an off-center circular pattern, and many of these have dials similar to your third example. One characteristic of this dial is having dots at the 5-minute marks and simple lines at the minutes. I wonder if these might have been requested by a particular jobber.Reading through the previous threads re Railroader dials, I have 4 Waltham model 1892 Railroader watches with Railroader dials.
However 2 are the bold Railroader with tracks around the outside and then there are two different Railroader dials as below, all with the word 'Railroader' rather than the word 'WALTHAM'.
These are on movements 7450550, 7489983, 7450555 and 7489826 respectively.
I feel the two different ones should be on the earlier movements and the bold ones on the later movements.

I do not believe it had anything to do with Eaton's Department Stores, despite the similar emblem on the dial. Eaton's used a simple "E" rather than the script E used here.Jerry, am I correct that the Diamond Express was for Eatons?
