Illinois SANTA FE DEVON Rare Version WGF Watch SOLD



This is an Illinois SANTA FE DEVON model wristwatch. It is an extremely rare version as only  two watches like this one are known to exist in this style case. This watch was evidently made in the 1920s by the Illinois Watch Company for the Santa Fe Watch Company based inTopeka, KS. It may have been a custom case used only by the Santa Fe Watch Company. I have only ever seen two cases like this one both have  this Santa Fe dial.

It has an excellent unpolished WGF case and an excellent original dial. Its 3/0 , 17j movement is running fine and is guaranteed for one year plus ten days.
