Nice, Greg. My yellow Blackstone has a similar dial with raised embossed gold numerals, but this white one has thicker flat gold leaf numerals. I suppose that is a less common dial variation?

Here is my YGF dial...Raised.
I think your WGF is less common. Have seen them, but not too many.
The Blackstone is such a great wearer... not big at all and quite stylish.

Over the weekend I purchased another RR51 for the collection.

Like Dan, I just fall for the dedications on the back, "FROM THE BOYS IN THE MACHINE SHOP 6-5-1963"

The fellas thought enough of him to buy him a watch!

The best part is; oiled it a little and gave it some air, who says an electric can't keep time, 1 second slow at 24 hours!

Pretty nice case, it's a keeper! As I boy rode the Zephyr from Winona, MN to Minneapolis, beautiful along the Mississippi!
