This outstanding Bunn Special RR case is in wonderful condition with very crisp design features. One of the best I’ve ever seen in a long while.
This C-1926 Illinois Bunn Special is marked “60 Hours”. It is a 16s Railroad PW featuring a 21 jewel movement adjusted for the temperature to 6 positions. Also features a gold gear train, gold timing screws, gold jewel settings, and a micrometer regulator. The railroad case is by Wadsworth and is 14k white goldfilled and features a screw back, screw bezel, and the signature fancy high bow. The double sunk dial has bold Arabic numerals and a bold blued “purple” steel matched handset. All are in outstanding condition for any age, let alone this one is from C-1926.
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.
