18 Size 21-Jewel Grade 327 Information
I really enjoyed Lindell's great South Bend history.I have a 16s 227, one of America's finest railroad watches.So, I've always wondered about the 18s version, the 327.I know they are very rare, and only about 300 were supposed to have been made.One showed up on Ebay I think about 2 yrs. ago, so that proves there are some around.Do they have the same damaskeen pattern as the 227?I saw the picture of the one that sold then, but I can't remember what the pattern was.327's must be one of, if not the rarest South Bend.Would anyone have a picture of one to show?Thanks again!...Ted

Lindell, Thank you for the answer an the pics of your 327.I for some reason always assumed the damaskeening would be the same as on grade 227.That one has a pattern all its own....You must have a pretty complete South Bend collection if you have a 327.Must have been a hard one to track down!Thanks again, Ted.
