The Boreal Arrow 

Code A03: 6 Size Illinois Gold Pocket Watch

This is a vintage 6 Size (38 mm) US pocket watch made by the Illinois Watch Co. in 1887, serial No 648886. It's a model No 1, Grade 140 in a full Hunter case unmarked but Gold case with 2 keys in the shape of an X with serial No 25944. Probably 10-12 karats. The case has a superb design of a bird and leaves with a crest and some letters engraved on the front cover. It's a very clean 7 jewel lever set (5 o'clock) movement. The dial has no hairlines and excellent Blue Hands. The Glass is excellent. The watch has been overhauled by my watchmaker and works fine and keeps time.
