    Nice little 60 hour Bunn Special!

    Been on vacation to see the family last couple weeks. My nephew gave me this pocket watch telling me it was my dads. The balance wheel is a little wobbly so I'm thinking bad jewel or shaft. Lay it flat and runs fine. The balance is out of my league so I'm hoping to get it repaired and serviced.

    bsshog40...Hello!

    These are nice to work on, and usually come Roaring Back! I've dealt with several--including such Sweeties as the 163A--and they usually have a few issues that are a function of age & frequent Services, but don't seem to mind!

    The damaged case screw should turn out easily, and be pretty easy to replace. The missing engraving-fillings are very common with these Illinois...for what it's worth: a dab or two with "Rodico" will remove what's left, although there are folks who want to preserve what they can. I saw a Patek Philippe Factory video detailing the making of their 175th Anniversary watch, and there's a scene where they show how they apply color ( in this case, red ) into the engravings: they pretty-much dab it on with a little brush, then ( I assume ) ever-so-carefully buff it off. I have worked on DOZENS of watches with the engraving enamel missing or damaged, and I'd REALLY LIKE to discover a way to re-do it!

    Nice watch. Should run to +/- 5 sec per day...just like a Rolex, only bigger! Enjoy. Michael.,
