This watch was passed down from my father who purchased it when he lived in Alaska in the 70's.  It's case is surrounded by gold nuggets, either end has gold rams with ruby eyes.  Needless to say, it turns heads!

I'm glad it's Railroad Approved!  Please spell out the line of text under Railroad Approved. Does that line read R.R. 9632Q?

ID changed from generic Accutron to "Railroad" based on new database format. 
The case/band is "Custom" but we are not using Accutron "Non-Conforming" for these to my knowledge.
It certainly could be discribed as an Accutron Railroad Approved non-conforming if we wanted.

It also has the "calendar" function, so begs the question: should it be entered as
"Calendar Railroad"
"Railroad Calendar" etc....
