The “R.R.-O”, first launched in 1970, has been reimagined as part of the Legacy collection from Accutron. The uniquely faceted stainless steel railroad case design has a crown placement at 4 o’clock, features bold Arabic numerals, a bright white dial, with a 0 at the 12-hour mark to meet Canadian Railroad specs, and a red second hand for accurate monitoring, as well as a calendar feature. The white accent-stitched dark blue leather grain strap completes the look. Only 600 pieces are available of the Railroad case design.
THE “RAILROAD” WATCH
Inspired by the first-ever railroad approved watches boasting superior accuracy due to Accutron’s unique tuning fork movement at that time, Accutron watches were among the first to be approved by the North American Railroad, which was comprised of 60 railroad systems. Before then, pocket watches were considered the only timepieces accurate enough to be “railroad-grade.” Accuracy, which Accutron is known for, was essential to prevent collisions from incorrectly timed track switching.
