quick/peek: Girard-Perregaux Railtimer HF

Off to a rare gem within my collection and a watch theme I will come back to in more detail to shed some light on the history of Railtimers and what role Girard-Perregaux played. However, today, we only take a quick peek at the Railtimer 8856 made for the Canadian Railway. A 36,000 vph high-frequency manual wind movement with balance stop for accurate setting.

Oh yeah, that orange second hand: it glows in UV light!
