VINTAGE ELGIN ILLINOIS BURLINGTON ROUTE RR POCKET WATCH:
$1,025

Offering here a very nice and highly ornate Elgin Illinois Railroad pocket watch. I am really out of my comfort area here as I am not a watch enthusiast or collector but I am describing to the best of my ability. Have also included numerous photographs to show the parts, stampings, numbering, and other details. I believe this to a be a Elgin National Watch Company, "Burlington Route", Grade 387, Railroad Grade pocket. The movement is marked Elgin Nat’l Watch Co., USA, 17 Jewels and serial numbered Waltham 33717678. It is an open face design in 16s size. The inside of the case is stamped Illinois in script over Watch Case Co., Elgin, USA Bona Fide and numbered 8146733. There are several sets of tiny jeweler inscribed sets of numbers scratched on the inside case: 2229 circle H 69 – 149-32 – 241-33 – 254-39 – 145-42. One really needs to use a loupe to see them and I do not know what they mean. Perhaps a jeweler’s code and when serviced? Three-piece "bassine" type screw back and bezel. The bezels and center are chased with a very attractive foliate edge pattern. The back plate has a fancy and attractive lined floral pattern which shows quite a bit of surface wear. White enamel face has bold Arabic numerals and outer minute dot numerals with one-minute Arabic markers in black. Every fifth-minute marker and numerals are in red. Sunken sub-second dial at bottom and center has “Burlington Route" in red, white, and black. VERY, very nice. ELGIN in large block letters below the Burlington designation. Excellent "Heavy Spade" blued hands. Very nice small circular winding crown with fancy line texture work. Small oval bow is also in place. The crystal is clean and not fogged, cracked or damaged. The dial is a bright white color and is marked as noted above. There is some finish and age wear to the bottom of the case and crown area from use and having been carried. Recently purchased at an old estate sale this watch has not been cleaned or serviced but is setting, running, and keeping time. One of three old railroad pocket watches I have listed all which came from the same source. Bargain basement starting price and listed without reserve. I am always happy to answer questions or provide further details. I accept returns and will refund the purchase price on any item that is not as described. Winner to pay postage cost for USPS Flat Rate Shipping priced at $6.00 with Delivery Confirmation. US sales only, please. I am always happy to combine shipping for multiple lots won on the same day. Please review my response and offer with confidence. Thanks for looking and good luck!
