The history of the Illinois Pocket Watch is a proud one. For they have been made with all of the care and devotion worth the of fine art.
The Railroad-grade Illinois pocket watch is particularly collectible. One of the railroad watches sought by most Illinois collectors is the 16 size, 23 jewel, Illinois Ball pocket watch produced by Illinois between 1927 and 1935.
