This is a size 16, Illinois, Abe Lincoln, 21 jewel Getty style pocket watch.
Lever set and stem wind. In a Illinois salesman display case. The watch was made in 1912. These cases were used by the watch manufactures salesman and the jewelers to display the watch movement without taking off the rear cover. This was the way in which movements were displayed. By not removing the rear cover avoided dirt and debris from getting into the movement.
