This watch went off today and I thought it would bring more. Apparently the watch was not known to have a connection with the famous J. C. Adams who was involved in the formation of the Elgin, Illinois, Cornell, Peoria and Adams and Perry watch companies. What is the story?

Isn't the JC Adams one of Cornell's more common grades? And it did have a cracked Waltham dial put on it.

Yes, it is probably the third most common of the varieties!

The dial feet are about the same-would it not have been more smart to put a "plain" Waltham dial on the Cornell?

Thank you mentors for enlightening me. The seller told me that the case was an American Watch company early coin case and I thought it may be a Model 57 as I am not experienced enough to recognize the movement.Turns out the bid was probably a little high.Another day that I learned a little something about watches. Thanks again, Keith
