Scarce Illinois “Marquis” men’s Art Deco design wristwatch in two-tone 14K green and white gold fill, circa 1929.
The two-tone “Marquis” is quite scarce, and this one of only two or three I have ever offered. It was priced at $55.00 in 1929. This example is in crisp, excellent condition with just a few specks of brassing to the tips of the lugs. Caseback is excellent and unengraved. The case measures 39mm long and 29mm wide. Original two-tone dial is good. Has new glass crystal. The watch is powered by its correct 19-jewel Illinois grade 907 manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.
