You are offerding on this Hamilton Railway Special model 950B 23 jewel pocket watch, as pictured. Size 16, (This watch measures about 2” in diameter, and is about 17/32” thick.) This watch is lever set and the lever and setting works fine.This watch is currently running strong, and has been keeping good time for the past three and a half hours since I wound it, I have not serviced it, and it could probably use servicing. This watch includes the approx. 13” long gold-colored chain, with heavy swiveling claw hasp and leather strap. It also has the pivoting bale on top, and thee crown reads:
The crystal is plastic so it may not be the original crystal. It is free of cracks and had very few minor scratches. This plastic crystal fits properly, but is not glued into place so it does not hold in place and I have not attempted to glue it in.
On the face reads: “Hamilton Railway Special” And is numbered in Arabic numerals, hours reading 1-12, (measuring about 7/32” tall) with the number “6” in the second hand area and slightly smaller than the others (measuring about 1/8” tall.)

There are two small yellowish stains(both approximately 1/8” in diameter), one on the four and the other outboard of the 1, I have not tried to clean the face, so they might wash off.
