I didn't know the Randall came in a black dial version. Very sharp looking!

Thanks Eclecticfunk.

For Wednesday,

1953/54 Elgin Dante. Finally found a white dial in decent shape. Uses a Swiss, 17 jewel automatic. Relumed the dial and hands as well. Finally, put it on a period Gemex band.

For Thursday

The 1956-57 Transcontinental "A" or Time Zone "A" with the correct Kreisler bracelet.

I have a spare set of dials and they are off at International Dial being refinished.

Thanks to Jim and his tutelage, I was able to make this bracelet 6 3/8" and have a second he did for me for the K-455.

This bracelet took three bracelets to come up with one presentable one! One to swap out the square ends (overall a very clean bracelet) and the round ends plus additional links from a third bracelet. It is officially a "long" the way Kreisler would have issued it; 16 links either side of the back as apposed to the normal 14.

Cannot wait to get a "cleaned up dial" in her! This has been a long time coming!
