Vintage Eye for the Modern Guy-RGM 222-RR

In the United states, where railroads, trains and the people who ran them are so intricately linked to the country’s national history, the locomotive profession and the watches purpose-built for them have long been romanticized. This is a common trend among many other jobs, and the watches associated with them, from the past hundred years or so — from scientists, sportsmen, divers, drivers, astronauts, actors, infantry, explorers, pilots, political leaders, and even polo players — but few other pieces are so strongly connected to a national history as the American railroad watch.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
