8804A. Rare 23 Jewel Ball Illinois Railroad Pocket Watch. This 16 size (case diameter 52 mm) pocket watch is one of the scarcest Ball railroad models. The movement is marked "23 Jewels, Adjusted 5 Positions, Official Standard Motor Barrel". The movement is very nice with only minor handling marks. The dial is perfect with NO hairlines and no chips! The Illinois Balls came with special hands, and this watch has those correct and original hands.

This case is a stirrup bow Ball marked case with bulldog neck. Although this is an original Ball case, it is not the original case for this movement and has extra mounting screw marks. The case has just a tiny bit of brass on the back cover, and the bezel is a little hard to screw on and off. I have discounted the price a little to account for this case.

This is a very scarce RR watch that rarely comes on the market. $2495

694A. Rare Waltham Special Railroad King Pocket Watch. This 18 size (case diameter 55 mm) pocket watch is one of the scarcest railroad markings by any maker. The 1883 model movement is marked "17 Jewels, Adjusted" on the plate, and on the barrel bridge, "Special Railroad King". The movement is very nice with on scratch coming off one of the mounting screws. Note the nice gilt trim! This is an original PENDANT SET Railroad Watch. They were NOT all lever set, that is fantasy on the part of novice collectors.

This watch has the correct original double sunk, porcelain dial which also has a very scarce marking, "American Waltham Watch Co." and "For R. R. Service". The dial is very nice with a single hairline in the outer chapter between 12 and 1.

This case is the correct age for this movement but is not original. The case is marked CWC Extra which is heavy gold filled. The case has light, even wear, no dents, and no brass. This has a nice glass crystal.

This is a very scarce RR watch that rarely comes on the market. SOLD
