There are 21 clean and inspected jewels to this 18 size Waltham pocket watch and they are all in gold jewel settings.

HAMILTON 974 "SPECIAL" ELECTRIC TRAIN RAILROAD POCKET WATCH  1932

STOCK NUMBER # HAMILTON90-------I have for sale a  974 model "special" marked pocket watch and just freshly serviced to perfection. This is a 16 size stem wind and stem set movement and made for the electric train era. Although it is not adjusted 5 positions nor a lever set it was and still is a specially made 974 "special" movement made for the electric train era so it does fall  in this category. This is a steel case with a mirror finish and no personal engravings as you can see by the scan. Across this case is 53mm. The case is signed "Imperial metal A.W.C.Co" and this is a snap in back not a screw in. The movement again is freshly serviced and there are 17 clean and inspected jewels and on the balance bridge it is marked adjusted 3 positions. This 16 size Hamilton keeps great time. The dial is perfect and the hands are genuine Hamilton factory hands for this movement. The serial number for this damaskeened 974 special Hamilton movement is 25,35,157 which places this gem to the year of production 1932 from the Hamilton Lancaster PA factories. A good clean piece indeed. On a closing note the crystal is glass not  flaw at all to be found

Hamilton originally made the grade 978, a 16-size, lever-set, 17-jewel movement with double-roller escapement, steel escape wheel, and adjusted to three positions, to meet the specific requirements of electric street and interurban railways, such as Lancaster, Pennsylvania's Conestoga Traction Co., and many other lines. grade 978 was discontinued 1924. The "normal" 974 had a single-roller escapement and a brass escape wheel, and was adjusted only to temperature, so it wouldn't meet the requirements of many electric railways. In 1928 they upgraded the 974 with double-roller and steel escape wheel and adjustment to temperature and three positions, and called it the 974 Special. It then replaced the "normal" 974 in the Hamilton line up, and was made in both lever-set (for electric railway and transportation requirements) and pendant-set versions. The 974 Special was available both as a complete cased watch (The Traffic Special) and as an uncased movement.

The 974 Special was to have been replaced by a completely new grade 974B (a 17-jewel, 3-position version of the 992B) in 1940, but to meet government needs, the 974B movements, on which production had already begun, were changed over from lever-set to pendant-set, seconds-setting ("hack"), grade 2974B comparing watches.

WALTHAM  "VANGUARD " UP AND DOWN DIAMOND BALANCE JEWEL----> RARE REPLACEMENT UP AND DOWN DIAL   1911

STOCK NUMBER # WALTHAM20-------Rarely but it happens, a conductor / engineer will drop his watch, it can also fall off the chain and many other reasons may be why the dial cracked, chipped and the watch then needed to be cleaned and free from any debris that could stop the cogs and wheels from keeping perfect time. The engineer would then at the next stop where the county certified railroad pocket watch person would be stationed at, the dial would be replaced and a new one would be sent ASAP but until then the "replacement" dial would be put onto the pocket watch and given back to the conductor or engineer. I have such a piece right here and freshly serviced, oiled and timed to perfection. The dial is a genuine Waltham factory replacement dial made for the American railroad system and as you can see the wind window is very different from the enamel wind window. This is a highly sought after dial and with the perfect operation movement it is a killer piece and multi times on the rare side. These days it is soooo easy to use the word rare but when I tell you "Rare"........ it is!. This dial is NOT made over seas, not made in a cave near Zimbabwe but factory original Waltham. This is a gold filled railroad case and across it is 50mm and this case is gold filled signed "Star Watch Case". The serial number for this case is 8,307,127. This is a Waltham 16 size stem wind and lever set wind indicator model 1908 movement and there are 23 closely examined and inspected ruby jewels. I will tell you both the balance cap jewels are made of genuine diamonds. Make note of the center wheel is solid gold and there are two caps on the  pallat and the escape wheel, held down by screws. The rest of the perfect ruby jewels are all in raised gold jewel settings and perfect!. On the barrel bridge it is written "adjusted 5 positions". The serial number for this genuine railroad pocket watch is 18,037,501. This is the most popular of all Waltham wind indicators as it is a "Vanguard" series and as the scan shows you it is in pristine running perfect order. The crystal is glass not a flaw and the hands are totally original. On a closing note there are no personal engravings on this case to be found. Serviced, rare dial and ready to go ;-)
