Transitional Illinois, Fancy Engraving.

Very nice Greg, and a stunning engraved case. Interesting how the printing carries on over the edge of the dial and down into the recessed seconds dial section. Is that dial original?

Interesting call on this one... the font is spot on and so are the numbers... I would have to look on the back.
Could be an old redial or an original. I have seen this dial before.

My thinking on this was the font and numbers looked great, as did the dial, but from previous posts of other dials, I was under the impression that Illinois did not tend to have numerals/printing etc carrying over into recessed or inner areas of dials etc, in order to maintain clean lines and so on. Would love to know your thoughts.
