For me, the "Ritz" is the quintessential Illinois model. (You always have such artistic photos of your watches -- I love that one with the branch and the snow!)

WOW!

Totally agree with Fred and Bettie here...

Every collection deserves a Ritz!

Nothing screams Art Deco like this watch, and the dial on this example is just fantastic.

Having one from Fred's collection makes it extra special.

Love the watch and super photography as always Dragos.

Love the photos, especially the one in the snow! It must remind the Ritz of it's original home in Springfield, Illinois

Thank you fellows, I do what I can with the photos and I try to keep close to your fabulous watches.
I learned a lot on this forum and many thanks to Greg and Fred for their support!

I know a collector in Texas that told me years ago he has a solid gold one. Never saw it, and have no doubt not to believe him, he also has
two platinum Hamilton Ovals.

Tease!

WOW would THAT be something to behold... I guess there are some closet collectors that just
hang on to the good stuff and never show it to the public, too bad.

ps... when Fred's book is here I promise to show some rarities here that will
knock some socks off, not fair to keep folks from enjoying them too.
