Dial... is original Illinois Two Tone Metal Art Deco Dial in very good condition, no oxidation, still looking like new! Plum hands in great shape. Fitted with a NEW Bulls-Eye Crystal.

Movement... is fully marked as stated above. This movement is in like new condition and running really well! Black lettering with gold screws. You have to hear this watch run to appreciate how well it's made. Winds as smooth as it gets! Nothing in today's world is made this well. Simply amazing timepiece! 806's were made for and carried by short line rail operators, street and Electric Railway conductors where railroad adjustments weren't required, hence the "3 Position Adjusted" markings.

This is virtually the same watch as a Santa Fe Special! Those all were 806's as well!

These were lower production timepieces and are sure to keep appreciating in value! This one has just been fully serviced and is ready for your carrying enjoyment! 21J Grade 806 in super clean condition with a nice case, beautiful Art Deco Illinois Dial, and like new 21 Jewel movement ready to carry......$199.00

  Circa 1909, Lever Set, Adjusted 5 positions, (marked) Marked Safety Barrel, Diamond End Stone,, RR Grade/Approved, this is a high grade 19J BW Raymond 240 in a Yellow Gold Filled Keystone J Boss 25 Yr Case.

Dial... is a porcelain Elgin double sunk 3/4 plate dial with Canadian 24 Hr Railroad numerals. Lite spider at lever and line at 58. Hard to find these 3/4 plate double sunk original Montgomery dials in mint condition anymore, let alone this desirable Canadian version...shows really well! Triple matching original Elgin hands.

Movement... also shows nice on this fine timepiece. No evidence of any scratches, this one was obviously put up and not disturbed for many years. This one is all business as evidenced by that motor barrel. Gold engraving. Diamond End Stone. Marked Adjusted to 5 Positions. One of Elgin's most beautiful, highly damaskeened movements. These are uncommon nowdays, and sell quickly when they do surface due to their fine workmanship, and undervalued pricing.
