SOURCE: illinois pocket watch stem removal.

First you must say what type as there are differences depending on the mfg and model.Be the following basics apply.
1- Put the stem in the setting position (usually pulled out if stem set).
2 Them open cover to expose the movement. ( Screw off or snap open).
3- Remove the movement (Usually held in place with 2 screws at the outer edge.
4-Then if there is a screw in the part that holds the stem loosen that.
5- The stem can be held with a pair of pliers on the flat and the crown unscrewed. Be careful not to damage the square (FLATS), with the pliers. A rag or other safety measure should be taken.
6- then inside the stem hole, looking from the ouside the is an annular area around the stem that has a ferrule screwed into the case this has to be unscrewed and will bring out the stem and the ferrule.
This siounds complicated but the steps are more involved to write than they are to perform.
There are many variations to this process, and each type should be understood before proceeding.

SOURCE: antique pocket watch

Case info does not help in dating a watch, A movement serial number helps greatly.

SOURCE: have a waltham pocket watch in an illinois case

If you go to the web site "www.antique-pocket-watch.com/waltham-pocket-watch.html", you will find information about Waltham watches and if you read the serial number off the movement (open the back and read it off the back plate), you may be able to find out the year of manufacture.

SOURCE: i have a continental 17 jewels watch and it looks

mcdevito75 here, You can try online at Continental watch.com However the numbers on the movement itself count the most, numbers on the watch face and back cover help. HINT!! -- If your Continental Watch has thick hands It"s most likely before 1965, if your watch has thin hands it"s most likely after 1965. Best bet, look for a small watch repair shop in your area, they can guide you too a shop that will know if they don"t. Also, you can check with any Antique shops in your area too.

I have an Illinois pocket watch and I can't figure out how to open it to get the proper info to look it up. Can you help me plz?! Thank you


The back screws off.
Turn it Counter clockwise.

The numbers you need is the actual serial number off of the movement not the case.

We then can provide you the production information on your particular run of antique pocket watch.

Hope this tip helps.

Can I find out from the serial number on an Illinois pocket watch if it is a dual time zone watch?


All the pocket watches that I have seen are designed so that the back hinges open (using your finger nails to open it).

All the watch information is usually inscribed on the mechanism.
