South Bend Studebaker 21j C-1927 Item #13116 Price $650
Here we have a 1927 South Bend Studebaker in wonderful condition. The white gold filled case is a 16-size and features some great details around the bezel, case back, and at the bow. The original double sunk railroad dial looks absolutely pristine, and features red accents at 5-minute intervals, as well as matched blued steel hands in very nice condition. The watch is powered by a railroad grade South Bend Studebaker movement with 21 jewels, wonderful striped damasking to the plates, and marked adjusted to 8 positions.
The price includes full restoration and repair. The work will be performed after purchase. This entails proper service of the movement, a new mainspring, and anything else that would be necessary to bring the watch into proper working order.
Once you've made your purchase, please contact us so we may discuss the restoration.
Please allow 1-2 weeks after purchase for service to be completed.
Our goal is to achieve what we refer to as "Sympathetic Restoration"; in other words, bringing the watch back as close as possible to its original appearance without the need to remove all signs of its former life. We don't want to dramatically change its history.
During the restoration, we only use we only use period-correct parts, and in most cases, genuine factory parts from the same time period as the watch.
