Illinois 16S 21 Jewel
"The Bunn Special"
Genuine 21J Railroad Watch
Beautiful Original Dial
Mainliner Case W/Train!
Great Railroad To Carry!
Serial #

RP

  Folks, I recently bought a couple of superior quality and condition Bunn Specials...they are far above average, if you want a nice one here one of them is!

Circa 1923, here's another great buy for the money! A genuine 21J Bunn Special! Has an original correct dial with no hairlines, triple matching original "plum" Illinois hands, and a Mainliner Style Case with a beautiful "Ball Style" Train on back! Prior to 1924, these Bunn Specials did not come from the factory in Bunn Special Case, so this may well be the original case. Movement is excellent, as nice an example as you'll find, still looks new, no scratches, as you can see, running well, has not been serviced. I managed to buy a couple of these recently, in this condition these are getting hard to find, for under $400 you're getting the real mccoy here, folks...fully railroad adjusted to six positions with a gold train! That Mainliner Case with the Ball Model Style Train on back is worth $200+ by itself. If you want a superior quality Bunn Special for your collection, here it is. Great deal at only....$389.00

Folks, this is a rare opportunity here...You'll probably never have a chance to pick this rare bird up again and certainly not at this low price. If you've been looking for one of these for your collection, but didn't want to pay the $3800-$4200 these used to sell for, (if you could even find one), here's your chance at a nice one for much less!

Case.... is a Fahys Permanent Fancy Back Case in beautiful condition with a crisp crown and tight French Bow...has a glass crystal. One of the best GF 18S railroad cases.

Dial... is original double sunk glass enamel Hamilton Montgomery Dial with correctly marked "Adjusted For Railroad Service" and "21 Jewels" under Hamilton in script just as it should be. Miniscule outer edge flake at 3 that wont even show up in pictures. Also features dual time zone hands. Shows very well. Stunning original Monty Adj For RR Service Dial!

Movement... is in similiar condition on this beauty. It is a two tone checkerboard and fully marked like the dial Stunning example and one you'll probably never encounter again in your lifetime, at least none this nice at such a low buy in price.

Running well, starts right up and has good motion. From the Robert Bennett Collection of Olivehurst, CA. I knew Bob personally and he had absolutely the finest Hamilton collection that ever existed on the planet! This is out of that collection. Folks, here's your chance at a very rare Hamilton.
Very nice example at a great price!

Don't miss this one at only....$2379.00

  Circa 1944, lever set, this beautiful RR Grade/Approved BW Raymond features the WW2 Issue 21 Jewel 3/4 plate Model 590 Movement!

Only 4000 of these beauties were made in 1943-44 only!

Also marked "adjusted 5 positions" and "temperature", approved by all rail lines...Elgin's best selling railroad watch! Also features an original porcelain Dial in mint condition, and a beautiful and quite scarce Elgin Style 25 #3156 Yellow Gold Filled "Diamond Bar" Case with the signature wide bow signed "cased and timed by Elgin" on inside back! Case shows very little wear, personalization on back but still looks great as you can see. These #3156 Cases in this good of condition and in yellow gf are almost impossible to find nowdays. These were carried by railroad professionals who demanded accurate timekeeping. Good Running order. Movement shows beautifully...nice thruout! Folks, this movement is one of the harder to acquire in the Elgin line, and seldom appear. Very nice package here!

I've priced this one to sell quickly...first come first served!

Look it over carefully, and I'm sure you'll agree it's a fine one, and a steal at this price.
Nice, scarcer 21 Jewel B.W. Raymond "590" with a scarce #3156 factory case from 1944 priced to sell at only......$279.00
