 Folks, someone's going to get a steal of a deal here!! Plymouth Watch Co (Rockford) 18 Size 21 Jewel King Edward Hunter! Full Restoration Done!

I'm selling a couple really choice watches from my personal collection and this is one...I've had this watch since 1997!!

Plymouth Watch Co. was sold by Sears in their 1905 catalog and made by Rockford. This is a grade 845 and is quite scarce, I know it took me awhile to find it! Since this was going into my collection no expense was spared to bring this beauty back to it's original lustre.

Case...is a Philadelphia Victory Gold filled with GORGEOUS engraving front and back and a village scene on back as well. Opens closes properly and just looks awesome.

Dial... is a RARE Plymouth Bold Roman double sunk, original to this watch, and impossible to find. Couple lite hl and a spider which are hard to see and you'll never notice w/o a loupe. Dial looks fantastic!

Movement... is the rare Rockford Grade 845 King Edward..very few like this were ever made..completely serviced, new glass crystal and is running along beautifully ready to show off and enjoy.

I'll probably kick myself for ever letting this one go, but it's really time to thin the herd, the new owner will be estatic when they get this one! Movement is like new and one of the most beautiful 18S movements Rockford made for Plymouth.

Folks, you'll rarely ever see this one. It's a beauty! Very Special 18S Plymouth King Edward Hunter in excellent fully restored condition at a great price!........$589.00

JUST FULLY SERVICED & MS

TO SELL..$295!
Serial#

  Circa 1903, here's an early, seldom seen #280 railroad grade/approved watch! This one is comparable in quality to the venerable Veritas, having a hi grade regulator, screw down jewel settings, fully adjusted to railroad positions, and gorgeous damaskeening. Quite desirable! This unique model was produced in 1902-1903 only, and fewer than 8000 were made!

Also features the beautiful 17 Jewel 3 FB Model Movement marked No. 280. These have all but disappeared from the market, this is the only one I've seen in quite awhile. Also marked "Adjusted" (5 Positions). Lever Set, RR Grade/Approved.
More features include the original porcelain double sunk dial in excellent condition, with one line that can't be seen save with a loupe. Shows well as you can see. Cased in a handsome Wadsworth Yellow GF 20 Yr Swing Out Case with a gorgeous crown and bow!

It runs very well, has just had a full service, including pivots polished and a new mainspring installed, timed, and is ready to carry and enjoy. Another Elgin Railroad you rarely see that's Extra Nice thruout!
Nice, very scarce #280 Locomotive Elgin from 1903... To Move At Only...$339.00 $295.00

  Folks, I've saved the best for Xmas this year...would make perfect gifts! I'm going to offer some authentic 1925-1955 Hamilton 992 and 992Bs cased in their original Hamilton Railroad Model Cases...

These are getting very hard to find all original in this condition, and I would like to help preserve these for future generations to admire and collect like we have done. Some will be literally one or just a few that were shipped in certain model and color cases by year, this is a fascinating part of Hamilton railroad collecting, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Circa 1949, Lever Set, Adjusted to Temp. and 6 Positions, Double Roller, Elinvar Hairspring, RR Grade/Approved, this is a beautiful 992B in an original 1949 Hamilton Brown Box including the grey watch sack. No numbers on box but this WAS the box and sack used in 1949...All original 1949 Packaging! Features the correct original single sunk #151 Montgomery Dial. Very scarce configuration here, Folks! Grab this one while you can!

Case... on this watch is a Hamilton Model 14 Keystone Base Metal Case. Serial # on case is #K284903, which shows 1949 production It is in very good condition, shows beautifully as you can see. Bow and crown are tight show very nice. This case was only made for ONE Year! Rare Model #14 Case!

Dial... is the beautiful Model #151 Montgomery. This dial was only made for TWO years...1949 and 1950!. These dials are almost impossible to find nowdays. Has several lite lines off center post which cannot be seen with the naked eye, only be using a loupe and tilting. The red 5 min markers still retain most of their original color and are not faded much as over 80% of these dials are. Very nice example of a scarce 151 dial! Beautiful black Hamilton hands that also show well, all original and correct, just as you'd want it and the way it was delivered in 1949.

Movement...looks good on this one. Check out the picture. Features 3rd model damaskeening, Fully marked. This watch has just been fully serviced and timed by us and is running great!
Folks, this original 1949 Hamilton #14 Model is another important piece of railroad history.

A package like this with an original 1949 brown box and sack do not surface everyday. One like this is a treasure indeed, especially at this price.

Get this original beauty and pass it down to future generations. Very Nice completely serviced rare case and dial 1949 992B in an original box at a price you'll never see again!......$379.00
