Illinois SPEEDWAY WGF RARE DIAL Watch SOLD

Description

This is an Illinois SPEEDWAY model wristwatch. It has a very good unpolished WGF case with some very light corner wear on two outer bezel corners .

It has an excellent original Later-Released Lancaster Dial that is extremely rare. I have only seen one other dial like this one, it was on a JOLLY ROGER. As Hamilton only issued these dials when they had an order for one after the Great Depression hardly any were ever sold. I cover these Dials in detail in the Dial Chapter of my book set.

Its 3/0 size, 17j movement is running fine and is guaranteed for six months  plus ten days.

This watch is from the personal collection of famed Illinois collector Farrell Gay
