Illinois Mans Wristwatch
14K GF, 17J, Luminous Fancy Dial

I bought this at an estate sale.
A perfect watch for you to restore.
Watch runs but stops when the hands meet.
Dial needs refinishing, also needs new hands.
Missing crystal, strap, and strap lug.
14K Gold worn through to nickel base metal on lower back.
All these issues are very fixable, so do a good job, this is a rare collectible!

blued luminous hands
nice luminous numerals on a fancy dial

Niello-like decoration on bezel and frame
Case size: 1 1/8 x 1 1/2 inches

Illinois, 17 Ruby Jewels, Nickel Mvmnt, #5,151,241 (1927 or 1928)
