Rockford 16s 17J, circa 1899

Model 2, Grade 575, Open Face

Lever Set, Stem Wind

Gold Filled Screw Back & Bezel Case

Dial:  This nice looking original Rockford signed dial is in good shape. It features black Roman numeral hour marks surrounded by a minute track with red minute Arabic numerals at 5 minute intervals. There are some minor blemishes, included a small edge chip near the 38 minute mark. The blemishes are not visible unless the front bezel is removed. The thin spade hands appear in excellent condition. The minute hand appears to be replaced, as it is slightly more blue than the minute and second hands.

Movement:  This beautifully damaskeened nickel movement is signed ROCKFORD WATCH CO USA 17 JEWELS in black filled engraving. There are some minor spots on the winding wheels, which is quite typical of watches this age. This well running pocket watch has been professionally serviced, and is keeping good time!

Case: This gold filled case is in good working order. It does have some signs of use, including some minimal wear to the brass. The back cover also has a slight dent that is visible upon close inspection. The front bezel and back cover thread on and off properly. The crown and bow are functioning properly, and have lots of life left. This would make a great every day carry, and would also make a nice addition to a collection.

Crystal:  The clear glass crystal is in new condition!

About 2 inches wide (approx 50 mm)
About 2 3/4 inches tall (about 67 mm)
