B.W. Raymond "590" Railroad
Like New Movement
Perfect Porcelain Dial
#3156 YGF Diamond Bar Case
Scarce WW2 21 Jewel BWR
| Circa 1944, lever set, this beautiful RR Grade/Approved BW Raymond features the WW2 Issue 21 Jewel 3/4 plate Model 590 Movement! |
Only 4000 of these beauties were made in 1943-44 only!
Also marked "adjusted 5 positions" and "temperature", approved by all rail lines...Elgin's best selling railroad watch! Also features an original porcelain Dial in mint condition, and a beautiful and quite scarce Elgin Style 25 #3156 Yellow Gold Filled "Diamond Bar" Case with the signature wide bow signed "cased and timed by Elgin" on inside back! Case shows very little wear, personalization on back but still looks great as you can see. These #3156 Cases in this good of condition and in yellow gf are almost impossible to find nowdays. These were carried by railroad professionals who demanded accurate timekeeping. Good Running order. Movement shows beautifully...nice thruout! Folks, this movement is one of the harder to acquire in the Elgin line, and seldom appear. Very nice package here!
I've priced this one to sell quickly...first come first served!
Look it over carefully, and I'm sure you'll agree it's a fine one, and a steal at this price.

Take a look at that movement! Really a special watch!
This watch variant was only mfg for 2 years...1903-1904 and is one of only 7000 made...very low production for an Elgin! It is in the same family as their top grade "150". This Overland was made for the "Overland Route" Train Line and is much harder to find!
This has just been completely gone thru and restored cleaned timed and new mainspring as well as a new glass domed crystal and that beautiful case highly buffed and polished. Shows as new!
These 17 Jewel full plate high grade movements like this with Gold Jewel Settings are one of Elgins finest quality offerings..and it's ready for you to show and carry proudly.
