Kelly Watch Company, c1900 Reportedly made in Chicago, Illinois, these 16s OF movements were made in aluminum. I know little of their history and have personally viewed just one example in 50 years of searching (the Roy Ehrhardt example, stolen in Chicago, fenced, but eventually recovered--a good reason to inventory and photograph all of your watches).

Default Kelly Watch Co, circa 1900

Reportedly made in Chicago, Illinois these 16s OF movements were made in aluminum. I know little of their history and have personally viewed just one example in 50 years of searching (the Roy Ehrhardt example, stolen in Chicago, reportedly fenced by a nawcc member and eventually recovered--a good reason to inventory and photograph all of your watches).
