Rockford Watch Co. 16 size 21 jewel open face lever-set Grade 537.  A very rare railroad grade watch with a total production of only 100 made, a notable feature of the Grade 537 is its spectacular fancy 2-tone gold and nickel damaskeen pattern which was not found on any other Rockford grade.  This example is particularly notable for the superb preservation of its movement 2-tone color.  Watch is fronted by its correct double-sunk enamel dial with script "Rockford Watch Co." signature and watch is housed in a 20 year gold-filled B&B Royal recase with very nice engraving and engine turning detail.  Movement serial number is 670009.

Running and a beautiful movement with excellent 2-tone color and luster.  Larger winding wheel has some mild abrasion toward its perimeter on one side.  Dial faces up very well with just a few very faint hairlines and with a very small patched edge flake under the bezel outside 33 minutes.  Case has a very strong in hand look and feel with superb crisp engraving and engine turning detail.  Crystal is plastic.

$2000 plus shipment.
