My Grandfather passed away early this past week at the age of 86. We were very close when I was a child. I brought my family up to my parents for the friday funeral and we stayed here for the weekend. Today I stopped by to visit with my grandmother and she gave me his old Pocket watch. It is an old Illinois Watch Co creation passed down to him from his uncle. I opened it and the serial dates it to 1921. My grandmother had it "cleaned" several years ago at a local jeweler for $70 and it seems to be ticking away nicely. No idea if that means it had a full service.
Probably the finest Father's Day gift I have received and I will treasure it until I pass it down
