Overall Condition: This Illinois Bunn Special Railroad Grade Pocket Watch's overall condition is just about Perfect! I have worn this watch on and off for the past year, (as I do with all of my watches to test their performances & their accuracies), and I was very pleased with its performance! The exact details of the watch are noted below, section-by-section. Please take careful note of each section, as this watch is a Railroad Grade Pocket Watch, or in other words; when it was built, it was subject to some of the highest requirements & standards of any watch made.

Railroad watches are also made under some of the most stringent standards, as peoples lives literally depended upon their accuracy, and a variance of just a few seconds could very well mean the difference between a clear passage and a collision (as in Casey Jones)! Just to give you an example of only one of the stringent standards placed upon these watches was that they could only have a minimum variance of 30 seconds per week or ~4 seconds/day!

Dial: This is a Single Sunk Enamel Dial. Therefore, it has a Chapter Ring, which has Arabic Numerals. The only flaw to an otherwise perfect Dial, is a small Chip by the Numeral "2". The Dial also has very nicely Blue Steeled Spade Hands.

Side: The Sides of this watch fit together so well that you can't even discern any lines of separation at all! The Sides are in very, very good condition!

Movement: This 21 Jewel Movement for this watch has a Solid Gold Train, Raised Gold Jewel Settings, a Steel Escape Wheel for greater durability, Beautifully Damaskeened Nickel Plates & a Micro-Metric Regulator to allow you to adjust the time to the accuracy you want and to have it stay there!

A Close-Up Shot Of The Movement: This shot just further enhances the picture that you have already seen of the Movement!

Balance Wheel: The Balance Wheel has Absolutely Excellent Motion! In fact, its motion is so fast, that it's basically a blur, in fact you can barely even see any hint of the Gold Set Screws!!

Case: The case is in excellent condition with no noticeable wear to it what so ever! On the inside of the Case, as you can see, the Watch case was made by the Wadsworth Case Co., is 14Kt Gold Filled & is a Model 29. All in all, the Case is in excellent condition and has been taken care of very, very well! There are barely even any scuff marks and no dings! In fact, if there are any, they are barely discernible. This watch is a truly Beautiful Case that's in Excellent Condition and in all honesty, it's a true find!!

Well, that's all I can say.
The Photos will tell you what you
really want to know about the watch anyway.

This watch would make a very nice gift to that special someone,
even if that "special someone" is you and your own collection!!
