    Here's another submission from the group.

    This certified (for railroad use) watch belonged to a long-time Frisco employee. When was this watch manufactured (+/- 5 years). The correct answer will include the reason for your date.

    1896 would be my guess.

    My guess would be May 1909, making it one hundred years old this month.

    The company that made the watch became the Illinois Watch Company in 1878 under Jacob Bunn as President.

    The style of number makes me want to say 1900
