This is an American Railroad pocket watch made by the Illinois Watch co circa 1924

The rare feature of this watch is the 60 hour Mainspring. This watch is particularly rare as it has the Mark I type signature where the watch is NOT marked 60 Hour above the Bunn Special in the signature but only 60 by the Motor Barrel in the signature. i.e. the watch has been marked once. The 23J 60Hr Bunn Special Mark I is rare with a production of only 950
