Grade 170 South Bend 6s - Another Rare One
I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves. The dial is absolutely period correct and most likely original. The case is a beautiful unworn 25yr Keystone.

Here's a new one. I got this in a grab bag junk pile. It had a broken mainspring, shattered lower balance jewel and some parts missing from the keyless works. Fortunately I have a supply of spare parts for the 6s South Bends. So in about an hour it was up and running. It cleaned up very nicely.

The added bonus was the dial. It's almost perfect. To get this all put together into a complete the watch hands are no problem but a 6s hunter case in even just decent condition can be hard to come by. I know I'll find one some day. Here's a picture of the nice dial. No hairlines.
