Watch adjustment is the process of correcting those errors in the watch that
cause variation in time keeping. These include temperature influences, variation
in driving power and position of the watch with respect to mechanism such as
pendant up or dial up.
Watches with better calibre movements will have been adjusted at the factory for
a number of positions. The usual array of positions include a subset of the
1. Dial up 2. Dial down 3. Bow up 4. Bow down (Not required by Railroad) 5. Bow
left 6. Bow right
These positional adjustments are intended to insure that the watch is just as
realiable and accurate regardless of the position in which it is stored or used.
