This is a 16 size Hamilton model "992" pocket watch, considered by many to be the definitive railroad watch and one of the main workhorses of the railroad for many years. It has 21 jewels and is adjusted to temperature and 5 positions. As with all railroad grade watches from this period, it's stem wind and lever set. The serial number is 2323366, which dates it to about 1929. The "bar-over-crown" railroad style case is gold filled and is unadorned except for some carving along the front and back bezels.
