Illinois 14k. white gold filled from 1927


We believe this is a very uncommon ILLINOIS USA made vintage watch in a 14k. white gold filled case. I’ve spent some time trying to find this model and cannot obtain any information. Usually, ILLINOIS watches are small in stature; this model is a bit larger than usual, measuring 27×37.6mm. in an “Ejyptian” style Art Deco case displaying very fine condition for its age. The manual winding movement was just cleaned and accurate. This dial, lume and handset is completely original. This watch came from a a long-time collection and has been put away for the past 25 years. There is a minor chip in the crystal in the top right corner…but is likely the original glass crystal-not really visible with the naked eye. Illinois watches are coveted for their rarity and movement quality.
