Elgin movement dated 1886. 18S, 16K gold HC case, 15J. Chicago, like Ball, did not make watches but purchased the movements they sold from other companies & added their name to the face. Chicago is not known for selling watches until 1895 so this Chicago movement dated 1886 makes this a very unique item, and possibly changes the history of when Chicago began to sell watches.
