    Can anyone provide me with any information about this watch? It has been passed down through the family, however I cannot seem to find any information about the Le Land Watch Co. available online. Not looking to sell, but to get more information, so that I can catalog it better among my family's artifacts.

    Thank you!

      Your watch is what is called a "Private Label" watch. The Le Land Watch Co. was probably a jeweler in Minneapolis, Minn.
      The watch is a Rockford movement from Rockford, Ill.
      It is a Model 3 Grade 560, 16 size, 17 jewel, lever set (the metal tab at the 4:00 position, needs to be pulled out, before you can turn the crown to set the time. Then pushed back in after the correct time is set.
      It was manufactured around 1901.
      The case was manufactured by the Crescent Watch Case Co. It is a gold-filled case.
      Hoe this answers your question.
