    Don't know much about this Pocket watch, my father passed in March and I found this in his stuff.
    Looks like S/N 3313942 Bunn Special, 21 Jewel, 6 position. Don't really know what that means. It seems to keep good time.
    Case says Wadsworth Pilot 25 year
    3675369 with A1507 so not sure if case is plated or grade of gold. Any info on this item is appreciated

      Wheres the front view? And your pictures are blurry...nice watch.

      The more Jewels the better.

      A pocket watch jewel is an item added to the mechanism of the watch to provide a smooth, long-lasting surface that increases the efficiency of the timepiece. Their main purpose is to reduce friction which could impact the running of the watch.

      Thank you everyone. What does the adjusted number if positions mean?
