The Illinois Watch Company based in Springfield Illinois was a very much respected Watch company which in the late 1920's was taken over by The Hamilton Watch Company, prior to the takeover, the company started commissioning their own unique watch cases, marking the beginning of what many collectors consider the company's Golden Era, during which the finest watches were made.
Amongst those models came the New Yorker, a 14K Yellow Gold Filled Case, with an wonderful Art Deco inspired engraving on the case, a clear white dial with the seconds at the 6 quarter and with an Illinois 17 Jewel Movement we would date this around 1929-31 but could be a bit later . This is a much sought after Watch and is in immaculate condition cosmetically.
