426C. Illinois Bunn Special, 23 Jewel, 60 Hour Railroad Pocket Watch.
This Illinois railroad pocket watch is 16 size (case diameter 51 mm). The movement is a Bunn Special marked Sixty Hour, Motor Barrel, 23 Jewels, and Adjusted Temp & Six Positions. This high grade Illinois also has gold train, raised gold jewel settings, and micrometer regulator, all with the red inlaid lettering.

The original porcelain dial is double sunk and excellent. The dial is nearly flawless, but does have a tiny hairline below the seconds bit and a tiny, tiny chip under the bezel at the lever. This is the highly desireable marked dial, same as found on the 163 and 163A Bunns. Excellent matching bold original hands.

The case is fully original pink gold filled and marked Bunn Special Model. The original owner did like the watch and carried it daily, so it has some wear on the edge of the back, and on the pendant. This case has a story to tell. The inscription on the back it to "W (William) R Crylie" PER, 1926-1927, BPOE (lodge) 808. Elks lodge 808 is in Salida, Colorado. Crylie owned a meat shop there and PER stands for Past Exalted Ruler, so this watch was apparently a gift in return for his service. I did a quick online search and found a picture of him in his shop in 1906, and reference to his obituary (he died in 1970), all of which I will give to the new owner. $995

The original porcelain dial is double sunk and excellent.
