For those of us who admire Illinois watches and/or collect them, and are eager to have new information -- especially about such rare models as the Greyhound. Maybe you have some photos of the one you say you sold to "sologracia"?

I wouldn't do that to one of my buyers. I'm outta here. Have a nice day and if anyone comes in with a Greyhound, send them my way!

There are at least 4 others on this forum that would be notified first. Posting a pic of a watch you claim to have owned doesn't betray your buyer.

Geez, what a moron you are. Claimed to have own? I don't really care what you believe. This tag game is over, and as stated, this conversation is over, so get over it, go to another. Have a nice evening.

ah, there's got to be more out there
Actually, I would not be surprised at all if sologracia has one. I know he has bought and sold a lot of very nice Illinois WWs over the years. But, for FULL disclosure, the last time he had one available for sale the word "Grayhound" was spelled wrong, and it was also a slightly incorrect and recently redone dial. That said, over the years John has pulled a TON of great stuff from Vicki's sock drawer! So much, that I wonder if there is any room there for her socks!? :D

He got no takers on the listing Rick mentioned ($299.99 BIN or Best Offer) but relisted it (yet again) and finally sold it on September 25 for a $110.00 BIN (much more realistic).

EEEEEEK, that "Beau Monde" is back to haunt us! Same watch: check it out against the original post on p. 3 of this thread and you'll see the same serial number on the movement as well as the same un-kosher case. A "rare" watch for some unsuspecting buyer now that the holiday season is here.
