Re: The Holy Grail has arrived

I think Fred's has an engraved bezel (pretty sure) and mine doesn't. I think after Hamilton bought Illinois they changed it to make it look more generic. This is solely a guess.

The watch is Dorothy looks smaller to me, but still cool. Look at photo with Mel Blanc, it's much larger.

Very very cool!
I remember repairing a similar Illinois clock, for a friend who owned a shop in Santa Monica, over 20 years ago.
The aluminum case was cracked and I heli-arc welded it.
Fred bought that one, I am pretty sure.

Re: The Holy Grail has arrived

I would bet he was a super guy. When I saw the auction was at his house, I think how times have changed.

He obviously had the bug like the rest of us.
