Rhett,

Have seen a few various Illinois dials with the design in the inner chapter... but never found info as to 'who', why....

The case pictured... it appears to have a wadsworth crown like on the Sangamo and RR cases... maybe replaced judging from the gap....

Terry,

Yes, may very well be a replacement. I purchased the watch as it sits (mainly for the dial) and have not had it out since taking the scan a few years ago.

I tend to buy and hoard. Leaving most of my watches and dials as found.

BTW, I've also seen the same design on a few metal Illinois dials.

thanks Rhett...


I have not seen the design on metal... is it painted also or engraved?

Terry,

Not 100% sure on the metal dials, but I believe they are painted. I have to admit that although I've seen a few of the metal ones, I've never examined all that closely.

I have had the metal ones which are replacements--terrible quality and I rid myself of them quickly.
