What to Love About This Watch: This excellent railroad watch was one of Elgin’s best offerings at the time. The gilt-inlaid movement adorned with raised gold jewel settings exemplifies this high-grade watch. The white gold-filled case was an uncommon choice at the time, but the crisp detail perfectly compliments the double-sunk dial and blue steel hands. This named grade, “B.W. Raymond,” was in honor of the company’s first president and was utilized throughout the production history.
