Hi, What I have here is an Illinois pocket watch. It was either my grandpa's or great grandpa's - not sure which.
Anyways, the movement says
19 jewels motor barrel
Adjusted 5 positions
Serial number 4422651
I was wondering if anyone could provide ANY info at all about this watch - I dont know anything about watches, but I find it really cool and would like to know more about it.
Also, the winder mechanism at the top - I dont think its working properly. If you turn it, it makes a clicking noise, but thats it - the watch doesnt get wound. But if you pull it up so that it changes the time as your turn it, and you go around a few times, well then the watch runs great. That doesnt seem right to me - but I dont know much about it. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on that too.
Oh, and here are some pictures:
