Hi Fred - it looks like continuous production of the model 4 stopped for a short while in 1895, and then was resurrected in 1897 (about 394,000 made in 11, 15 and a few 17J in grade 2 and grade 61), and then another 6500 or so in 1902 (15J grade 61), and then another 12,900 or so in 1907 (7J grade IWCo).The final line "All movements manufactured by us are lever setting". It does seem the Model 4 pendent-set had been pretty well phased out by this point and it would be interesting to try and identify the final run of Model 4's.
Fixed the use of the word 'model' to 'grade'!ps. the last 21J model 4 run (by serial number) looks to be a grade 65, 1290981-1290990, in 1895 which was adjusted "TPI" and with "Jewels in settings - Patent regulator" ... and the last model 4 adjusted to "TPI" and with "Jewels in settings - Patent regulator" was a grade 61 and 15J, with numbers 1626621-1626630, in 1902.
No images at this time....but informationIf anybody has a Bunn Special in Model 4, they have a very rare watch. I would love to see one.
Terry, I know that model 4 Bunns are not terribly common(or at least not in 17j) but a Bunn Special is a totally different story.No images at this time....but information
