I have them same dial. Thought it was aged, but seeing yours, wonder if that is just the way it is?

Love the Ace Tom. The simple strap with white stitch looks good on it too. Where did the strap come from?

Good luck today.

Sorry that you have to be in the hospital, grumpyguy, and hoping that the rest of the New Year will be a good one for you -- best wishes from mrtoad and me! (Glad to see you have Stan's wonderful Elgin book for company!)
