Rockford 18s 17J, circa 1907

Grade 835, Hunting Case

Lever Set, Stem Wind

Nickel Hunting Case

"One Star" in "The Complete Price Guide to Watches"

Dial: Original Rockford single sunk dial features black Roman hour numerals with red Arabic 5 minute marks. The dial is in pristine shape without any blemishes whatsoever. The deep blue hands are also in excellent shape.

Movement: This rare watch is a grade 835 and is designated with one star in the price guide, to designate its status as an uncommon movement. The highly damaskeened nickel movement has very bright and shiney plates, like the day it left the factory nearly 100 years ago! It features a micrometric regulator, expansion balance, Breguet hairspring, and screw down jewel settings. It is marked in gold colored engraving "R. W. Co, 17 Jewels". It has just been professionally serviced, and is keeping good time.

Case:  This plain nickel hunting case was made by Philadelphia Watch Case Co. It is marked "Silverode". The hinges and case spring function properly. Both front and back lids have minor scratches due normal pocket wear, and have a few small, insignificant dimples. This is a really nice case!

Crystal:  Clear crystal appears to be as clear as glass, but I believe it is plastic. It shows off the nice dial very well.

SOLD!
