Question

Hi Melvin, I am really hoping you can help me with this one. I have searched far and wide!

Here are a couple pictures of the watch via Flickr. (If you have time to look at them) http://www.flickr.com/photos/34322917@N08/4996449722/in/photostream/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/34322917@N08/4995843775/in/photostream/

All I really know about it is what you see in the pictures.

Bedforde W Co. Octagon shaped 12s 15j 2 ADJ (not sure what that means)


Answer

Ian,

The Bedforde Railroad watch was a name used by Goldsmith & Co. of Toronto. The watch was approved for service on the Canadian National Railway, but NOT on the Canadian Pacific.

Some of these movements were also labeled "Elco".
