Here is number 1224087 a Wavy-Damaskeened Pendant-Set Grade 211 which is very common with some 54,000 produced. But this one is from the final run ever of 16-size South-Bend movements...

Produced in four runs with only 500 blocked each time and Adjusted to 5 Positions with 19-Jewels, one of the 2,000 original South-Bend Railroad Grade 292 Hunters would a desirable addition to any collection.


Marked as 292 this one, number 511699 is a rarity...

The 419, a marketing mistake or miscalculation. It's a finely made watch that uses the same parts as the 431 minus the extra jewels. A very nice 17j 3-Adjustments watch.

Some 12s South Bend movements. A few of these are repeats, but the pictures may be slightly clearer.

This watch, the 223 was given such short shrift at the factory that they made even less of them than 229 " The Studebaker" for a total of ~5k.

Mr. John Flahive III, don't be worried at all about posting repeats. It is nice to fill in the gaps and take pics of the grades of watches that are missing. Still, with repeats we aren't really just seeing the same old thing, we're seeing a watch of that grade, and, some variations may be spotted, from the obviously different damaskeening to slightly different font size or typography.

Also, I believe most of these watches are like extremely beautiful women. Different photographers will take a different picture but somehow I don't think we're going to get tired of all the pictures of fully-exposed movements in all their glory laying reposed and supine within their case. God, and in this case Walter Shelton and Charles Higgingbotham, made these watches to look this way, i.e., to be looked at.

Less tongue-in-cheek, some people have definitely honed their photo skills and great movement pics can spur those of us a little lacking to do better in our own photography.

Here is my 312 from 1908. Only 1 run with only 1000 numbers set aside. Sorry for the poor quality of the photo. My equipment is not real good yet.
