confirmed 1975 Accutorn Rail Road Apporved Mark IV from me too.  Nice accutorn peter-g. Thanks for adding them to the database!  Looks like Ranfft may have the jewel count listed incorrectly for these RR approved watches?  He lists the 2185 as having 13 jewels?  I think the jewel count dropdown entry doesn't have a choice of 13 jewels, or it may be a 14 jewel anyway.

I'm pleased I could help with the database. Ranfft is correct with the 13 jewels. I did an edit on the Additional Information.
