1880 Illinois Miller Grade Model 2 18s 15j 24 hour Pocket Watch Coin Silver Case
This pocket watch is sold for restoration and is no return, sold as is.
Circa 1880 Illinois Miller model 2 pocket watch, 15 jewels, size 18s works in a coin silver case.
Case details: Dueber serial number 304483. Engraved back side. Hinged from cover missing crystal. Surface scratches to the case with deeper grooves near the opening areas. Watch works have not been removed from the case by me. Heavy at 146.1 grams all inclusive as pictured.
Crystal - Missing - broken out.
Dial - edge chipping with the largest chip at the 3/15 hour mark. Dial is a pretty clean dial otherwise with no noted hairline fractures.
Hands - Original blue intact in fine antique condition
Crown - Gold filled? Nice visual condition. Works as it should to adjust the hours - this is a level set pocket watch.
Works - Visually look good with no obvious damage or replacements. Balance and staff appear solid but appears to be hanging up. Visually, I would say based upon the response of the balance assembly this needs cleaned and lubricated to run properly. Wound tight I believe - I do NOT have a key to wind this or test it but it does appear wound tight suggesting it is dirty, dried lubricant and may require a main spring. I believe it will be a relatively easy restoration for someone.
