Last night and again this morning I wore a white gold Illinois ladies' Tonneau model with a moiré dial:

In Fred Friedberg's eagerly awaited book set there's information about this model and also about the special dial.

G G, that pocket conversion is awesome. I wonder if a hunters case was ever converted to wrist capability? Adrian yesterday at work.

We are at the beach in Sarasota, Florida, loaded some photos on my laptop so I could stay in the loop!

Most of the trip I have had my favorite the 54' K-502 on with the original issue Kreisler bracelet.

Thanks to Dan for tuning it up!

I love that watch. That case shape was fairly common among women's watches, but yours is the only men's watch in that style I've ever seen.
Real men wear small watches.
