Illinois Watch Co. 16 size 23 jewel open face lever-set Sangamo.  A rare variant, this movement's combination of bright spotted pattern nickel damaskeen and simple "Adjusted" marking (without additional adjustment details and/or "Double Roller" marking) is very seldom seen among 23 jewel Sangamo movements.  Watch is fronted by a double-sunk enamel dial and is housed in a gold-filled Canadian made "Banner" model recase.  Movement serial number is 1598997.

Running and a nice looking movement with good color and luster and only a few typical mild surface marks and spots.  Dial has some faint hairlines and fine scratches, a small chip the the inner rim of the outer chapter inside 9 O'clock, and its seconds-bit appears to have come loose and been glued back at some point but is seated slightly off level.  Case is attractive showing some mild wear to its engine turning.  Inside back of the case has had "X Mas 1922" scratched on its surface.  Glass crystal has three small internal edge chips.

$350 plus shipment.
