My second Illinois

Well, I guess I have an Illinois collection now. Here’s my second one. Beau Brummel two toned case, 19J movemnt. I guess I’ll learn more about it when Fred’s book gets here. Unfortunately it has a bad balance, so I’ll have to deal with that. https://www.mediafire.com/convkey/b642/ica98nrqca8e5567g.j...

Fine watches my fellow members.
Today I'm going with the 1961 Sherwood R with original band.

Re: New Blackstone

It probably comes out from the top, after you pop off the bezel.

Re: My first Illinois - Advice/Info please

Thanks For the comments Greg and thanks for hooking me up with Fred. He was great to work with. He had several dials to choose from, but I had to step up and get the NOS one.

There is a picture of your watch model with the Rockford Screw dial on page 197 in Rene Rondeau's "The Watch of the Future".

Re: My first Illinois - Advice/Info please

Well I scored a NOS Beau Dial from Fred and I couldn't be happier with the results. The lume matches well with the hands. Also, it turns out that the old dial was an older refinish from 1938. https://www.mediafire.com/convkey/b260/w8t4g8kr2e91n317g.jpg https://www.mediafire.com/convkey/ab1b/3u75p4ou...

Hamilton Green Gold Filled Tonneau Engraved. I found a nice Hadley Green Gold Filled Bracelet to go with it.
