    Another movement ID request

    I'm doing another round of movement identification attempts.

    Here's a 23.9mm 7J one from a "Brewster" watch labelled "Made in USA" I hope some one can ID

    Illinois Watch Co. "I.W.CO". Most likely one of their private labels and one of their lowest grade models.

    Thanks for the idea but I haven't been able to find a matching movement made by the Illinois Watch Co.

    And you most likely won't. However, that "I.W.CO" is from the Illinois watch company. All of their private label watches were branded with these initials. More than likely they didn't want their name actually associated with watches of this low grade.
