Illinois Bunn Special 16s 60 hour Railroad PW C-1928 features a gorgeous 21 jewel movement adjusted for temperature to 6 positions. Also features gold train wheels, gold timing screws, gold jewel settings and a micrometer regulator. The railroad style keystone case is in very good condition and features a screw back, screw bezel and a beveled glass crystal. It is engraved on the back. The double sunk dial has bold Arabic numerals and matched blued steel hand set. A minor hairline and small chip behind the bezel must be mentioned however, it does not impact the quality of this timepiece.
Photos are of the watch in its current, unrestored state.
The price includes full restoration and repair. The work will be performed after purchase. This entails proper service of the movement, a new mainspring, and anything else that would be necessary to bring the watch into proper working order. Case cleaning and refinishing are also included. The extent of case refinishing, if any will be left up to the new owner.
Once you’ve made your purchase, please contact us so we may discuss the restoration and case refinishing.
Please allow 1-2 weeks after purchase for service to be completed.
Our goal is to achieve what we refer to as “Sympathetic Restoration”; in other words, bringing the watch back as close as possible to its original appearance without the need to remove all signs of its former life. We don’t want to dramatically change its history.
During the restoration, we only use period-correct parts, and in most cases, genuine factory parts from the same time period as the watch.
