This is a very uncommon circa 1969 UNIVERSAL GENEVE railroad watch utilized and approved by the Canadian National Railroad. To be “Railroad approved by C.N., the watch had to meet the following specifications: “Watch movements and cases used in service must be of the approved standard in effect at date of entry. All watches entering service must be of the anti-magnetic type, fitted with 24 hour dial, waterproof, shockproof with stainless steel screw-back case and equipped with tension ring crystal. Cases with gold plating on stainless steel and stainless steel with gold top are permissible” This 35mm. gold plated case with inwardly curved lugs and stainless steel case back displays excellent condition. The easy to read original railroad dial with original handset looks very good with mild ageing. This Universal Geneve Railroad watch is one of the more difficult examples to find.
