South Bend 227 16-Size PW C-1924
Here we have a 1924 Railroad Grade South Bend 227 in very good condition. The 10K gold filled case is a 16-size and features a very cool bi-plane engraved on the caseback. The original double sunk railroad dial looks absolutely pristine, and features fancy blued steel hands in very nice condition. Surrounding the dial is a 60-minute track with red accents at 5 minute intervals. Very cool! The watch is powered by a signed Caliber 227 movement with 21 jewels, marked adjusted to 5 positions and temperature. As with all period railroad grade watches, this watch is stem wind, lever set.
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.
Once you’ve made your purchase, please contact us so we may discuss the restoration.
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 we only use period-correct parts, and in most cases, genuine factory parts from the same time period as the watch.
