    Gold Train in Bunn Special Pocket Watches

    Do ALL Bunn Specials have a solid gold gear train, or is this a special feature only in some.

    I am getting the impression that all Bunn Specials have a Gold gear train.

    My Bunn Special has a gold gear train, but I seriously doubt that it is solid gold. Gold plate makes more sense from a cost and strength point of view.

    All 16 size Bunn Specials should have the gold(plated) train. Bear in mind that the Bunn Special train wheels will interchange with most other later 16 size watches, and a damaged wheel may be replaced with a non-gold one.

    To my knowledge, no 18 size Bunn Specials had gold trains.
