Explanation of lever set: For those of you unfamiliar with Railroad grade pocket watches, stem wind, lever set refers to the safety mechanism of a small steel lever, exposed by unscrewing the bezel, which allows the movement to be set. Stem wound, as most watches, the lever set feature, prevents unintentional changing of the time, as could occur if the stem were to pull out, or loosen while being carried. This is a safety feature of all railroad grade watches.
