SOLD - Illinois 16s, 17-jewel Marquis Autocrat, “Extra Thin” model. Solid gold center wheel, Illinois motor barrel. Adj 3 Positions
This is a stunning Men's high-grade 17 jewel stem wind and set Illinois 14k white gold filled pocket watch from the 1920s. All original in good working order, this watch is ready for use or to add to a collection. Crystal is clean and there is very little wear on this watch with non brassing. I presume the original owner only used this for special occasions. If you haven't noticed, it has a unique and very eye catching dial with Geneva Stripes in silver with hand etching around the inner edge. The rest of the case is high original polish with tasteful hand engraving around the edge of the case. If you're just getting into collecting or a seasoned pro; this is a great watch to start with or add to a collection as they just aren't seen often in this dial format and American ultra-thins are hard to find. Furthermore, it's a 17j watch with 3 adj and very well finished; this is not a cheap watch but an inexpensive one.
