NOTE: lever set pocket watches use a lever located under the screw off bezel to release the mechanism that locks the time setting feature. This is a protective device required of all railroad grade watches so that the time cannot accidentally be changed by the crown dislodging. This safety feature was required when strict standards of quality and accuracy were instituted after the disastrous collision of 2 trains outside Chicago in 1893.
