Railroad Watch | Waltham Vanguard Railroad Pocket Watch with Up/Down Wind
Some of the highest quality pocket watches were equipped with a "wind-indicator"
also called an "up-down indicator". The up-down indicator is a small dial
indicating the amount of "power reserve" left in the wound mainspring. Most
up-down indicators have a scale that points to zero when the watch is fully
wound and then gradually indicates to a higher number as the watch runs down.
This can be thought of as the number of hours that have elapsed since the watch
was last wound.
