Burlington Watch Co

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