Grandpa's Pocket Watch
Grandpa's Pocket Watch
Grandpa worked for the Santa Fe Railroad from August 1947 - January 1984 (yes, 36 years for the same company). He bought this railroad-approved pocket watch new in 1948 at Jagger's Jewelry in Wellington, KS for around $66. He carried this watch in his pocket every day until 1980 (that's how the trains ran on time), when he "retired" it and bought a wrist watch after the railroad approved them. Santa Fe required certain brands and models of pocket watches be used and they were to lose or gain no more than 30 seconds a week. Wrist watches were verboten when he first hired on and continued so until the late 70's.
