Today I've been wearing one of my favorite Illinois watches, a "Blackstone" I got from Fred last year that has a lovely sparkle dial:

Tuesday's watch is an Elgin 6720:

Not bad for a $15 watch, running well and complete with bracelet!

Grumpy, I like that bumper! I'm fascinated by automatics in square cases, since the mechanism seems to push most designers to use round.
