Hoping for an Illinois Watch from Santa?

#1 Post by Magpie » Thu Dec 21, 2017 7:48 am

What Illinois watch do you wish Santa would bring you?

For two years now I've been hoping for a "Motor Coach," one of the Illinois "unknowns." (Rumor has it that its identity, as well as IDs of many other previously unknown models, will be revealed in Fred Friedberg's new book!)

Ditto, either a Motor Coach or Greyhound would be a nice Christmas surprise.

I have a white GF square Cut Corner on order from Fred. I don't think it will be here before Christmas, but that's alright, my birthday is so close it'll be just as good.

I'd like a nice two tone Guardsman!

If Santa’s dedicated enough, how about a nice engraved Piccadilly?

I'd really like to find a green Jolly Roger. I'd take a Chesterfield, preferably the stepped-bezel version.

And, of course, I'd always take any Illinois in a solid 14K case (or even a Hamilton-illinois 14K).

I hope you all receive your chosen Illinois. I would take any Jolly Roger. They're just so cool looking.

Hoping for a YGF Tank. I have always loved the look and deep etching in the bezel.
Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year to all!
