"The Bunn Special"
Genuine 21J Railroad Watch
Beautiful Original Dial
Mainliner Case W/Train!
Great Railroad To Carry!
Serial #
4038676


  Folks, I recently bought a couple of superior quality and condition Bunn Specials...they are far above average, if you want a nice one here one of them is!

Circa 1923, here's another great buy for the money! A genuine 21J Bunn Special! Has an original correct dial with no hairlines, triple matching original "plum" Illinois hands, and a Mainliner Style Case with a beautiful "Ball Style" Train on back! Prior to 1924, these Bunn Specials did not come from the factory in Bunn Special Case, so this may well be the original case. Movement is excellent, as nice an example as you'll find, still looks new, no scratches, as you can see, running well, has not been serviced. I managed to buy a couple of these recently, in this condition these are getting hard to find, for under $400 you're getting the real mccoy here, folks...fully railroad adjusted to six positions with a gold train! That Mainliner Case with the Ball Model Style Train on back is worth $200+ by itself. If you want a superior quality Bunn Special for your collection, here it is. Great deal at only....$389.00
