This is a scarce, ( low serial number 2173) 1st year production, 2nd run Illinois Bunn. Made in 1872 this watch is 143 years old. It is key set and key wind, 18 size with beautiful gilt plates and 15 jewels. It also has solid gold balance weights and is adjusted. The dial is the original and is in great condition with no hairlines or chips and reads Illinois Springfield Watch Co. The beautifully engraved gold filled case is an uncommon G.W. Ladd. Ladd cases were known for their superior quality and often contained more pure gold than the average gold filled cases offered in that period of time, equal to a low karat solid gold case.

Thanks for looking!
