| Rockford 16S 17J |
Near Mint Original Dial
Like New Fancy Back RR Case
Beautiful Condition Thruout!
Scarce Rockford RR Watch!
| Circa 1906, lever set, adjusted to 5 positions, double roller, RR Grade/Approved, here's a very scarce Rockford Winnebago! |
Features a YGF 20 Yr Dueber swing out RR case with a beautiful famcy back in like new condition! Nice glass crystal. Original double sunk Rockford dial as well. One miniscule flake at 5. As close as you'll ever get to a perfect dial on this rare bird! Movement is in excellent, crisp condition and truly like new. Marked Winnebago, adjusted 5 positions, 17 jewels and adjusted. Running well, has not been serviced or timed. These Winnebagos are rare, folks. (I see only one of these for every three "The Studebakers") which are also very scarce, so you can imagine how few of these "Winnies" are actually out there!)
This was Rockford's version of that watch! One of the most beautifully damaskeened Rockford movements they made. These typically sell for $400-$500, when they can ever be found. It's been awhile since I've had one. If you're after a collectible Rockford, you won't do much better than this one. At this price, and in this condition, it's an outstanding bargain! Look for yourself! Very Scarce Rockford "Winnebago"........$349.00
