      Wow! $20.... Very nice high grade "railroad" pocket watch. Easily worth 20 times what you paid for it. Shawnicus, I'm shoppin with you the next time you go...lol...

      thanks everybody , sometimes you get lucky and sometimes it feels like your actualy supposed to go someplace,.this was on of those,., and toolate ..REALY? i knew it was a pretty movement but i figured with the chipped dial it wasnt worth as much,..seems to be a rock solid timekeeper ,.are RR grade movements that much more valiuable? ,..not knockign your knowlege just lookign to expand my own!

      Just check out ebay. I just did and I may have been a little lite... Most are listed with a buy it now of $800 and up!! And yes, the railroad grade stuff is more valuable....
      Model 1899 Riverside Maximus: "Nickel, Non-Magnetic. 21 Diamond and Ruby Jewels: Two pairs Diamond [Capstones]; Both Balance Pivots Running on Diamonds; Raised Gold Jewel Settings; Gold Train; Jewel Pin set without Shellac; Double Roller Escapement; Exposed Pallets; Patent Micrometric Regulator; Compensation Balance; Adjusted to Temperature, Isochronism and Position and carefully Timed; Patent Breguet Hairspring, Hardened and Tempered in Form; Fine Glass Hand Painted Dial of Most Modern and Artistic Design. The superior construction of this movement adapts it to the most exacting service.
