Hi all.

Can any of you identify this watch please.
Is it an Illinois movement in a generic case? Can't find any details anywhere. I'm thinking it probably is, as the watch face doesn't seem to line up at front really well, but then I'm a complete bumbling novice :)

Thanks as always,
Andy C

Correct Andy...
It is a proper Illinois movement in a generic case with an aftermarket dial that says 'Illinois" on it.
Not factory, and put together over the years somewhere.
The value of this watch is basically the movement only.
