Description

Vintage 1920’s Illinois Bunn Special 60 hour railroad grade pocket watch. Featuring 16 size nickel signed “Bunn Special” open face railroad watch in extremely nice condition. Featuring a beautiful “double sunk” white enamel dial with large black enamel arabic numbers and blued steel spade hands. Powered by 21 jewel manual wind lever set “Bunn Special movement. With knurled edge bezel, heavy and fancy bow. 60 hour refers to the large mainspring barrel that allows the watch to run for 60 hours when fully wound. Like all railroad watches, this watch is lever set, which means that the bezel must be unscrewed, the lever pulled out to set the time, and the bezel screwed back on. This was an important safety feature to ensure that time was not inadvertently change risking a collision between trains running on the same tracks. The 60 hour Bunn Special is a classic among vintage American railroad watches, and the current example is quite a fine example.
Recently serviced and offered with our 1 year warrantee of accurate time keeping and operation.
