Elgin Thrift 433 Dial Needed

#1 Post by retroworx » Tue Apr 24, 2018 7:28 am

Hello Fine Elgin Folks:

I recently acquired a 433 with surprisingly good enamel, but it does not have a correct dial. Might anyone have one for me, in any condition?

Alternatively, since there are no raised figures on the correct dial, I might be able to refinish any other 4/0 Elgin dial that has subseconds and has printed (but not embossed) numbers/track.

Please reach out if you think you may have something for me, thanks!

Michael, I sent you an email to an old address I have for you. Let me know if you don't receive it, thanks.

I think he just wanted to tease me with them — I haven't heard back from him. ;)

Thanks for looking, Carl. Please reach out if you stumble upon one in your hunts. . . .
