Illinois 60 Hr. type 161A Bunn Special railroad watch.

Illinois 60 Hr. type 161A Bunn Special railroad watch.

Illinois railroad watch that was made in 1942 after Hamilton Watch Co. had taken over Illinois production. This is a 60 hour Bunn Special grade 161A  that features the Hamilton produced "Elinvar" white metal hairspring and solid balance wheel.

The watch has a fully capped lever escapement with double roller, Sapphire pallets, the "Elinvar" temperature resistant hairspring, gold timing screws, and a micro-regulator. The watch was serviced in July last year so it runs strong and keeps excellent time, it is stem wind and lever set.

3 piece gold filled case in nice condition with just a couple of very minor dings to the rear. All of the gold is bright and lustrous and the screw on / off covers do so easily.

The double sunk white enamel Montgomery dial is in great condition, heavy spade style hands in nice order under a good acrylic crystal.

Overall a very high quality railroader in good order and working as intended
