    I posted this in the forum "my newest clock acquisition." I am re-posting here in the hope I'll get more responses. These clocks were purchased and used by the Canadian Pacific Railway as Dispatcher Clocks. I am most interested in learning about the movements.
    Thanks
    Brian

    You can get in contact with Zenith archive department and get a archive letter and get info on movement. You need photo's of movement and the clock or watch movement serial number link below.
    Extract from the Registers
    Below info I got from Zenith I had another Zenith I got less on all depends on the info they kept over the years. Was well worth the price on the info below I got.

    I have a couple of partial Zenith Chronometers that are very similar to the Waltham 8 day pieces. They were upgraded from Zenith travel clocks just like many of the Waltham Travel clocks were at the start of WWII. They both are signed for Vail Clock Co. of Chicago.
