New E-2. How do I get to the dial?

Hello. Just got this E-2 off of ebay. I like the shape of it. It doesn't run yet. Any info on it would be appreciated. The year it was made, quality of movement, if the hands are original? Its real dirty on the dial. How do I get to the dial? Take out t 0624171414a.jpg 0624171413.jpg 0624171412b.jpg...

Awesome watches everyone. Works of art. Gruen for me today. 430 movement, made in 1941 or 42.

Re: My first Illinois
