Illinois Grade: 89 C & O (Chesapeake & Ohio) Special   star stars  star_1077.gif animations mini other   star stars  star_1077.gif animations mini other  

The two tone movement was serviced 5/19/16 and the watch is running and keeping time. It has the new alloy main spring and consequently is a little harder to wind, most size 18 with the new springs are.

This movement most likely started out intended to be a 21 jewel movement as there are not supposed to be any 17 jewel two-tone movements. This may be 1 of 1 in this configuration and be worth many times the listed price.

Priced well below bottom book of $1750.00

Very nice gold filled case.

Porcelain enamel dial has a small repair by 5, nearly impossible to see.

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.
