So the data says that it is adjusted to 2 positions and is not a Railroad grade, and when I look up the S/N it says it is a Grade 555. The movement is actually a 573 and adjusted to 5 positions. Any help here??

Freemasonry dial. Very collectable and a nice movement.  
Don’t forget the funny hand shake.

So do you think it is RR grade? Has the inside setting leaver.

If you mean railroad, my answer would be no. I think the movement and its condition is too good. It could be for someone who has something to do with the R R and also a freemason. Someone who does not get his hands dirty.

5 adjustments is not the same as adjusted to five positions it is thought to mean that the watch is adjusted to heat, cold and three positions on these Elgin grade 573. A watch stating 8 adjustments would be a watch that is adjusted to 5 postions, heat, cold, and isochronism.

Thanks for the insight, appreciated.
