Illinois Washington Lafayette 23 Jewel 16s Very Rare Hunting Case Pocket Watch
16 size 23 jewel hunting case lever-set Washington Watch Co, Lafayette pocket watch. A beautiful example of this very rare top grade private label, I believe the total production of this hunting case Model 4 version of the Lafayette was only 195 made. Movement is beautifully finished with gold jewel settings, gold balance screws, gold train wheels, Getty model design with a distinctive one-finger bridge plate arrangement, and attractive fancy nickel damaskeen. Watch is fronted by a double-sunk enamel Roman numeral Washington Watch Co. Signed dial and is housed in a beautifully engine turned and engraved 25 year gold-filled case which appears to be its original and is marked with a capital “W” for Montgomery Ward & Co. Which is the retailer that carried the Washington Watch Co. Movement serial number is 2202984 which dates this watch to about 1909. Running and a beautiful movement with excellent color and luster. Winding wheel has a small bit of oxide at its perimeter. Dial faces up well with just some faint hairlines in the outer chapter between 10 and 11 O’clock, a minuscule pinpoint flake to the inner rim of the outer chapter near 10 O’clock, and a tiny surface scratch at center below the hands. Case is beautiful with superb engine turning and engraving detail. Case front lid has some wear at its latch area but closes properly when closed with a firm squeeze, but if not closed firmly will occasionally open unintentionally.
