Many of us have a 7 jewel pocket watch in our collection, but normally we wouldn't post them here. We may think of it as too pedestrian a timepiece, and would anyone be interested at all? I beg to differ. Actually more people wore these when they were new compared to their highly jeweled counterparts, so they are highly representative of their time.
I will be first. Please add your 7 jewel watch.
This is an Illinois grade 120 from 1889. It is a 14 size model 2 pendant set 7j, and was only made in one production run of 2500 units. The movement is spotless, almost like new, dial very nice with one hairline.
