Note: The movement on this watch indicates that it is 15
jewel, not seven. This watch is pictured on
Etsy.com, (unless I buy it).
Curator Response: Thanks for the report. The Elgin Grade 7 was exclusively manufactured as a 7-Jewel movement. The "15 Jewels" marking is possibly an after-market addition.

Note: My watch has a dial marked "Rockford Watch Co."
"Illinois" but the movement is marked "David Hess"
"Ottawa Ill." Will post some photos later.
Curator Response: In that case, you will need to conduct a lookup under Rockford instead of Elgin for proper information.
