empressissi™ is pleased to offer this unique 16 size hi grade Illinois BURLINGTON pocket watch with a fine manual wind movement made in the USA. This watch is interesting not just because of the amazing movement but also because of the case which is decorated with a rare version of the American flag bearing 12 stars.
The watch houses an early grade 107 state of the art manual wind movement running on 21 jewels which is technically a railroad grade caliber but has limited approval. It is a fine stem wind/lever set American made movement made by Illinois.
The movement is cased in an original 14K Gold filled Strata Burlington case in excellent condition with original bow, crown and mineral crystal. The back has a unique twelve stars American flag filled with mostly intact enamel in three tones.
The dial is a sought after white double sunken enamel with Montgomery design and an original set of hands.
This fantastic American pocket watch measures 48.5mm side to side (excluding crown).
