    About this item

    Antique American Illinois Gold Filled Railway

    Pocket Watch USA 1922

     

    An antique American Illinois gold filled railway open face pocket watch, made in the USA in 1922.

     

    Dial: The white enamel dial has thick black Arabic numerals with outer minute divisions. The dial has blued hands and a subsidiary second’s dial at the six. The dial is signed in the upper centre: “Illinois”.

     

    Movement: The anchor lever movement has 21 jewels with a swan regulator. The movement is signed: “Bunn Special, Illinois Watch Co, Springfield, 21 Jewels, Adjusted Temp and Six Positions” and numbered: 3918150. As this pocket watch has a very high movement and is fully screwed, a watchmaker can make this pocket watch to work with full accuracy! Now the movement is in great working condition; however, we cannot guarantee accuracy for an antique pocket watch.

     

    Case: The watch lies in a steel gold filled open face case with screw case both back and front with a big engraved monogram on the back case. The inner side of the case is signed: “Wadsworth Referee 20 Year” and numbered: 5487049.

     

    Diameter: 49 mm - Weight: 85.5 gr 

    Signed: Illinois - Made in USA - 1922

     

    Please note: to set the time of watch you need to open the front screw back case and pull out the lever at the one/two and turn the winder to set the correct time.  This method was done specially for the guards travelling on a train for the safety of the people, so that they could keep exactly the accurate time.

    Never pull on the winder as this can break the watch.
