This watch came down to me from my father, and from his father before him. Prior to that, it may have belonged to his father who was a railroad man. If that is not the case, it may have been a wedding gift from my grandmother. They were married in Twin Falls, Idaho. The watch was assembled by E.D. Harrison of Pocatello, Idaho. I keep it in a glass dome because it means so much to my family. It has had a recent clean lube, and adjust and also a new crystal. The movement is a railroad grade Vanguard Premier 23 jewel movement from Waltham, Massachusetts. It features beautiful engine turning, gold inlaid engraving, and beautiful red jeweled bearings. The watch is lever set which can be accessed by unscrewing the front bezel. It has been lovingly passed down from one Robert to the next, and some day, I will give it to my son Robert.
