Top quality 21 Jewels, 60 Hour watch, an American classic, circa 1926.
Screw back and front Wadsworth 'Bunn Special' model gold filled case. 16-size nickel lever-set movement jewelled to the centre, with radial damascening and engraved 'ADJUSTED, Temperature, 6 Positions.' Double-roller detached lever escapement with polished steel club-tooth escape. Compensation balance, blued-steel balance-spring with overcoil and fine adjustment regulator. Double-sunk signed enamel dial in perfect condition (American watch dials, as are all watch dials, are not made of porcelain), blued-steel hands. 50.5 mm diameter.
Illinois Watch Company, Springfield, Illinois, 1869-1927, at which time the firm was bought by the Hamilton Watch Company. The 'Bunn Special' is perhaps their most famous production - see any of the books on American watchmaking. NB: Bunn Specials come in a great variety of specifications.
A good example of these 2-day pocket watches showing few signs of use and the plating still good on the case. Serviced for its previous owner and running well.
