Illinois C & O (Chesapeake & Ohio) Special Grade: 305

The movement was serviced 3/16/16  and the watch is running and keeping time. The C&O special is very rare in the 17 jewel configuration even though there were a significant number of grade 305 movements produced as best I can determine only a handful were marked C&O special.

Nice gold filled case with ornate back, initials on cartouche appear to be BK but I can't be absolutely about that. This watch would qualify as extra slim in my opinion.

Porcelain enamel dial.

New old stock glass crystal.
