Illinois “Burlington” 21 Jewel Railroad Watch circa 1920


Vintage 1920 Illinois “Burlington” 21 jewel Railroad grade pocket watch. Featuring 16 size 10K yellow gold filled open face railroad watch in extremely nice condition. Featuring a beautiful  “double sunk” white enamel dial with large black enamel arabic numbers and blued steel “moon” style hands. Powered by 21 jewel manual wind lever set, 5 adjustments movement. With knurled edge bezel, heavy and fancy bow. Like all railroad watches, this watch is lever set, which means that the bezel must be unscrewed, the lever pulled out to set the time, and the bezel screwed back on. This was an important safety feature to ensure that time was not inadvertently change risking a collision between trains running on the same tracks.

Burlington watches were manufactured by Illinois Watch Company between 1909 and 1925 and sold directly to the consumer by mail in order to reduce cost to the consumer.
