The BW Raymond "590"
All Original Triple Signed
2 Year Production..8000 Made
Truly Like New 590!
| Circa 1944, lever set, gold jewel settings, adjusted to 6 positions, RR Grade/Approved, Here's a scarce high grade 21 Jewel Elgin BW Raymond Grade 590! |
This is by far the finest example of a 590 I have ever had or seen, shows almost new.
The BWR Grade 590 was made only 2 yrs...1943 and 1944. Around 8000 were all that were ever made. IMO this model is the best late model BWR Railroad watch, has the best features of the 478 AND the 571 in it. This one as you can see is like new, still has the original sand marks showing predominently, beautiful original case super tight bow, perfect dial and hands, all this one needs is a box.
I just had this fully cleaned and serviced as well as a new old stock Elgin mainspring installed. Watchmaker said this may well have been the first service on it. Everything straight as an arrow. Also installed a beautiful acrylic domed crystal on it, these would have came with an acrylic crystal when new and I wanted to keep it all original as best I could.
If you like BW Raymonds, and don't have a 590 in your collection, you probably won't find one any closer to new than this...it's ready for you to show and carry proudly! Times out great. If you're looking for only the best example in a railroad watch that is also extremely hard to find, this one would be it.
