I have several Railroad watches. Some have been in the family since the 1800’s.
I have collected Hamilton, Elgin and Illinois like those in the picture for years.

Nothing in particular. I'm just amazed at all the intricate parts, how they are all mounted, balanced and timed to work together. My fingers have difficulty replacing the condenser in a distributor!
It's just not the fingers, my eyeballs are trying to thread a needle to fix my backpack for my adventure. Hahaha

Yep. I sometimes, when in a store, have to take a picture of the label of something so I can enlarge it so it's legible. But that doesn't work for threading a needle!!
