Hamilton 992B Railroad Pocket Watch with Bar over Crown Case
At introduction in late 1940, it was advertised boldly as "America's finest and
most accurate railroad watch." It was also the last railroad watch, made and
certified after others went out of production in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. The
Hamilton 992 and 992B may be the most popular railroad watches ever made.
The bar over crown model case was designed for the rugged challenges of life on
the rails without sacrificing its stunning appearance. This was a railroad-grade
watch in every sense. It features raised shoulders and a larger frame to
withstand impacts better, thereby increasing the watch’s durability.
