    Great! Is there anyway to know the Case Material, Case Type, and the "Original Case"? It's what the pocket watch database needs to find the estimated value.

    It's a 25 year gold filled case. It's hard to say originality with absolute certainty, but it doesn't appear to have held anything other than this model of 12 size Illinois.

    With that said, I already consider the information from Pocket Watch Database to be at best questionable anyway, and I'd REALLY consider any value appraisal to be suspect(he may have ripped off Cooksey/Tom/Richard's book, but the prices in there are sometimes a joke anyway).
