| || Folks, I'll be putting all the South Bend watches here in The Studebaker category from now on...all these are so scarce and so few I want them all together. |
Circa 1910, Lever Set, Adjusted to Temp & 3 Positions (5 position adjusted), gold screw down jewel settings, gold train, RR Grade this is a good find...a beautiful 217! This model is hard to find, so South Bend Collectors, here's one for your empty slot!
Case... is a screw back and front Trenton 20 Yr YGF RR Style case. Monogrammed back. Shows very nice. Crown nice and bow is tight. Just take a look...beautiful! What a suitable case to show this beauty in. Nice Crystal.
Dial... is original South Bend double sunk RR Dial with optional Bold Roman South Bend Lettering! It shows perfect. To find this Bold Roman South Bend Dial in perfect condition is next to impossible. Triple matching Original Blue Steel South Bend RR Type hands. Beautiful Scarce Bold Roman Dial!
Movement... as stated above is definitely the unique part of this timepiece. It is a scarce Grade 217 movement, only 19000 were made, and these seldom surface. It's in excellent condition! Look at that beautiful, unique damaskeening and those gold train wheels. This is the 17J version of the high grade 21 Jewel 227 and was used for trolley car and short line railroad use, and actually with the 5 position adjustment and lever setting could have been RR Approved on some rail lines.
We just fully cleaned and oiled this one, and it's timing perfectly, ready to show and enjoyed.

The "227" Railroader
Gorgeous NAWCCO Case
| || Folks, I know this isn't a THE Studebaker, but it's a high grade 227 South Bend RR watch in near museum quality condition, and thought it belonged right here...check it out! Circa 1924, Lever Set, Adjusted to Temp. and 5 Positions, RR Grade/Approved, this is a South Bend 227. It is set up just like it would have been used in the mid 1920s...has seen very little if any railroad service, still in like new condition, running well! |
The movement, which is engraved very much like THE Studebakers is like new. One of the nicest 227s I've seen.
The dial is porcelain and looks perfect. Very tough to find dials in this condition! Nice original blued hands.
Case is a NAWCCO Security case with a plain back and a pyramid bow. Don't often see this model at all anymore! It has survived in excellent condition as you can see. You'd be hard pressed to find a nicer 227 at any price.
If you've always wanted an extra nice railroad-approved South Bend, here one is at a very reasonable price given the condition...
