I have one Illinois which fits into the category you are looking for. It is an 18 size key wind. The movement is fancily finished (actually quite beautiful), is 15 jeweled, has the serial number 186745, and is marked AETNA. On the dial is "I.W. Co". Good luck with your project.

-25444244 C.R. Smith & Son/ Philidelphia on dial and mov't
-143523 FH & Co (monogram) Chicago on balance bridge
-monogram might be HF & Co but I'll go with FH for Fred's sake
dial is a regular Illinois Watch Co.
A correction to my post above. I was working on #143523 today and realized there is a second "H" in the monogram (curse those monograms!).
So the combination might be "FHH & Co". Sorry for the oops.-Cort
185621 - 'Monitor', model 2, Columbia grade, 11J
204283 - 'Hudson', model 2, grade 101, 11J
That is a very nice and very early PL Dave.
You may or not have this one already, 18 size, marked 'CLEVELAND' on just the movement, s/n 197275, in a Newport coin case.
162894 - 'Iowa Watch Co. - Iowa', model 2, America grade, 7J, SS 'Iowa Watch Co.' dial
J.E. Parry. Unfortunately, I can't find anything on just who exactly J.E. Parry was or where he was located.

#1,217,111- Charles Strouse/ Shenandoah, Pa. on dial and mov't + a dapper derby wearing man on a galloping horse on the case.
324362 - "Made Expressly for Jacob Morch, Brooklyn, N.D." (North District). Model 3, grade 106, jeweled 5th pinion (both sides), 17J. Double-sunk dial with old English script. Incidentally, I have an earlier PL for Jacob Morch (shown somewhere earlier in this thread) that shows him in "Brooklyn, E.D." (for "East District"). In doing a bit of searching, I found that he had moved his jewelry store from Grand St. to Broadway in 1880.
303999 - 'Charles Stark, Toronto', model 2, grade 61, 15J, SS 24-hour dial.
Thanks all for the continued contributions to this thread and for showing some great watches!
Interesting note about Dave's last one is that the Aurora Watch Co. also made some private labels for Charles Stark with the same unusual 13-24 hour numerals outside of the 1-12 numerals.
