Burlington Watch Co
16s 21J, circa 1923

Model 9,  Grade 107, Open Face

Lever Set, Stem Wind

Nice Base Metal Case

Burlington Watch Co watches were high quality watches made by Illinois Watch Co.  

Dial:  Original dial metal marked "Burlington".  The dial looks near mint (8.5 to 9 on a scale of 10).  Bold black Arabic boxcar style numerals show well and are consistent with Railroad watches.  Hands are deep blue in color and look as good as new.

Movement:  High grade movement is marked "BURLINGTON WATCH CO., CHICAGO; 21 JEWELS; ADJUSTED TO TEMPERATURE & POSITIONS; DOUBLE ROLLER".  The jewels are in raised settings, and this has a steel escape wheel, nickel damaskeening with black lettering and Patent regulator.  The balance has good arc and this watch is keeping excellent time.

Case:  Base metal case is marked "Defiance".  Both bezel thread on and off as they should.  Case is in great shape with just minor pocket wear.

Crystal:  Clear crystal appears to be plastic.  Has no scuff marks or scratches that I can see.  

SOLD!
