...Well in one of those...NO WAY!!! moments i off-hand mention to my good friend Carrie about the pocket watches...And it turns out that NOT ONLY did her great grandfather work for the N&B HER DAD HAS HIS WATCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! On Fathers day her dad was nice enough to allow me to photograph it! May i humbly present Pearle Kohler's Gold Elgin pocket watch given to him by the Northampton and Bath railroad upon his retirement.

On the watch's back Pearle Kohler's initials are beautifully engraved... This watch does show some wear and tear but is in beautiful condition... Much thanks to Carrie and her parents for allowing me access to such a rare piece!!!!
