Montgomery Dial Railroad Watch?
« on: January 19, 2015, 02:51:51 am »
 Can anyone explain to me the significance of a "Montgomery" dial on a railroad pocket watch? Just spotted one on The Bay of E-ville, and I'd like to get some idea what it's worth.

Many thanks,
Darwin

The dial has each individual minute numbered around the edge, used by railroad workers for exact timing.

Presumably worth would depend on how old the watch is.
