Elinvar was an earlier French development by Ch. Ed. Guillaume, and c.1930 Hamilton bought the right to the exclusive American right to use Elinvar. However, they soon discovered that it had some serious problems in addition to its much-touted advantages. Primarily, it was softer than steel hairsprings, resulting in more sluggish motion and poor isochronous qualities, particularly in larger size watches such as 16-size railroad watches. It was easily damaged if not handled with great care by watchmakers and was known to sag, causing position errors or worse, and there were claims that some of its characteristics changed with aging. Hamilton's experience with the original Elinvar quickly told them that they needed to find something better, and that was Elinvar Extra, introduced c.1940., initially on the all-new railroad grade 992B and special WWII timepieces, and eventually to all Hamilton domestic production.

The jewels if you look will be in raised gold jewel settings and even the center wheel is solid gold!. On the barrel bridge it reads "Adj 6 positions" so again this is a genuine Canadian railroad up and down Vanguard pocket watch as the inner 24 hour Arabic markers tells me it is and was used on the Canadian railroad system. This is a stem wind and lever set at the 11 pm position and as it sits in front of me and I am writing down this small essay, it ticks away like Mozart to my ears!!! The back of this case is a screw in and there are no personal engravings at all to be found on this case. On  closing note the serial number for this Vanguard serviced wind indicator 16 size pocket watch is 25,342,557 from the year 1926

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 ;-)

A fun little bit of pocket watch history...

If you were in the market for a watch in 1880, would you know where to get one? You would go to a store, right?
Well, of course you could do that, but if you wanted one that was cheaper and a bit better quality than most of the store watches, you went to the train station!
Sound a bit funny? Well, for about 500 towns across the northern United States, that's where the best watches were found.
Why were the best watches found at the train station?
The railroad company wasn't selling the watches, not at all, but the telegraph operator was.

Most of the time the telegraph operator was located in the railroad station because the telegraph lines followed the railroad tracks from town to town. It was usually the shortest distance and the right-of-ways had already been secured for the rail line. Most of the station agents were also skilled telegraph operators since that was the primary way that they communicated within the railway system. They would know when trains left the previous station, and when they were due at their next station.
It was the telegraph operator who had the watches. As a matter of fact, they sold more of them than almost all the stores combined for a period of about 9 years.
This was all initiated by a telegraph operator  known as "Richard". He was on duty in the North Redwood, Minnesota train station one day when a huge crate of pocket watches arrived from the East.
No one ever came to claim them. So Richard sent a telegram to the manufacturer and asked them what they wanted to do with the watches. The manufacturer didn't want to pay the freight back, so they wired Richard to see if he could sell them. So Richard did. He sent a wire to every railway agent in the system asking them if they wanted a cheap, but good, pocket watch. He sold the entire case in less than two days and at a handsome profit.
That started it all.
He ordered more watches from the watch company and encouraged the telegraph operators to set up a display case in the station offering high quality watches for a cheap price to all the travelers.
It worked! It didn't take long for the word to spread and, before long, people, other than travelers, came to the train station to buy watches. Richard became so busy that he had to hire a professional watch maker named "Alva" to help him with the orders.
And the rest is history as they say. The business took off and soon expanded to many other lines of dry goods. Richard and Alva left the train station and moved their company to Chicago -- and it's still there.
YES, IT'S A LITTLE KNOWN FACT that for a while in the 1880's, the biggest watch retailer in the country was at the train station.
It all started with a telegraph operator: Richard Sears and his partner Alva Roebuck!
Bet You Didn't Know That!!!
Now that's History!!!!!
