Folks, here's an excellent example of a tough to find Bunn Railroad watch in a really unique case. This is a very important and rare Illinois railroad, with low production. I've seen very few of these looking this nice thru the years and none with a case this unique. These are about as good as it gets in the 18S Railroad category, and I feel are an excellent investment, especially with this case and at this price. Think hard...there will never be another like it........$569.00

   Circa 1912, here's a pretty 'lil Elgin 7 Jewel in remarkable shape! Pendant~Set with Gilded Plates, beautiful steel wheels/regulator/or screws, and the case screws are original and full, a Grade 293, Serial #17,383,465 From 1912 the very same year the TITANIC was built and sank, tragically claiming the lives of 1,523 souls. This one is a survivor from the same ERA and it runs, winds, and sets nicely.

A single sunk dial of porcelain with red 5 minute markings and ELGIN simply in block, I see no hairlines or other problems. The matched original hands are nicely blued and still look almost new and are Double Swell Spade & Pointer.
Cased in a newer Base Metal Defiance Screw Back & Bezel case with fancy edging and Rope Styled center section with a smooth plain back that is so crisp it looks like white gold! The bow is tight and the crown sharp and E-Z to wind. It has a clear glass crystal with no blems.

The Titanic which was almost 900 ft long, that's 3 football fields long, had 4 smokestacks, which one stack was just for looks, burned 825 tons of coal per day and left a HUGE Carbon Footprint. This nice 'lil Elgin leaves NO Carbon Footprint and today after 107 years, ticks right along! If you are looking for a daily wear watch that doesn't cost an arm and a leg as well as one with some historical significance, this one is a great carry watch.....Doesn't get any better......$99.00
