For sale is this vintage, man's 14k yellow gold filled 15 jewel Illinois wrist watch. The watch case measures almost 1 5/8" from lug to lug x just over 1" wide, not including the crown. The watch case / movement is hinged as shown in 2nd picture and is nicely etched round the edge and engraved as shown. I've left the Hadley stretch band on because it looks like it's been there for years. The great part about this watch is that the seconds hand is located at 9 o'clock giving the dial an interesting look. The watch is running and keeping time for more than 48 hours. Case has no flaws; very minor scratching to crystal. The dial is discolored and may simply need to be cleaned. The only tiny flaw I can find is that the crown slips just a bit when winding so it does need an adjustment. Watch works fine as it is, but this needs to be mentioned for accuracy.
April is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month; a portion of my sales will go to our local SPCA.
