Re: New porcelain dial Illinois!

Thanks. Yes the hands really glow bright. Thats a good idea to take the paint out. I might have to try that. It looks great on your telephone dial Illinois.

Re: New porcelain dial Illinois!

Just got this one running. It's keeping great time. Seventeen jewel, 1905 movement. Starting to get used to these hands, while looking for authentic or original style ones.

Re: New porcelain dial Illinois!

Thanks GJH. Is there a way of decoding those watchmaker marks? The codes, numbers, letters, scratches? To come up with a service date?

Re: New porcelain dial Illinois!

Got another new enamel Illinois! Working on getting it going. These watchmaker marks are kinda interesting. Can't quite make it out. Oil, poise, adj.? Cool looking watch. Cant wait to get it running.
