Take a step back in time...and time-keeping...with a Pocket Watch with Silver Walking Liberty Half Dollar. This beautiful silvertone railroad pocket watch features an authentic Walking Liberty Half Dollar on the watch case's face. Struck in .900 fine silver and minted from 1916-1947, this historical coin depicts a graceful Liberty advancing toward the dawn of a new day. Open the pocket watch case to check the time, and the reverse side of the coin is visible on the underside of the lid.
The back of the hinged case of this antique-style pocket watch features a highly detailed relief sculpture of an historic “Iron Horse” locomotive of the famed Rock Island Line, immortalized in song by such artists as Lead Belly, Lonnie Donegan and Johnny Cash.
A railroad conductor checking his pocket watch in the station is a nostalgic scene from America’s past. “Railroad Watches” first appeared at the end of the 19th century when, to avoid scheduling errors, standards for timepieces were established for all railroads. While the design of this Liberty Half Dollar pocket watch is steeped in history, its quartz movement is state-of-the-art. The watch case and included 14-inch fob chain are composed of alloy and steel and arrive with a Certificate of Authenticity. A truly special gift for any fan of fine timepieces or the history of America's railroads.
