Solid example of a 1870 Illinois Currier key wind pocket watch in fine running order. Lost about 3 minute over a 24 hour period. I do not know if this is a 11 Jewel or 13 Jewel works.
Fahys Coin Silver case No1 SR# W2000 is overall in good condition showing wear to the artistic engraving on the front - no monogram - as would be consistent with a nearly 150 year old pocket watch. One small ding area in the back cover that you could reasonably have removed work out yourself. A few other minor impressions into the case that are hard to capture in images. Comes with a Key, but I do not know if the key is original or not. Front cover is a slow open, not very springy, and the latch needs adjusting.
No noted cracks to the dial - has tiny flea bites along the edge and really could stand a proper cleaning. Some surface scratching along the crystal dial cover area.. Hands are in very good condition with some noted minor rust spots. Works are ticking like a clock..lol... need to be cleaned with spotting and greening starting.
Some light swirling to the inside covers and a few deeper scratches to the inside covers. A solid example of this pocket watch. Should be properly serviced to ensure it continues to run as it should.
Movement may alternatively contain 13 jewels.
