Illinois Beau Brumell.

Here is the last Illinois that I have restored. Although it needs a new dial and crown it is a very nice watch.

Best regards.

Very nice...I don't mind that dial at all. I like that bezel better than the more common version.

Likewise, I think that dial is fine. Careful application of rodico may even get it better. I've saved far worse :)

Thanks to all.The dial is very nice with a gold numbers. I thought to change it but finally I will conserve.

mrcardigan, I always clean carefully Illinois the dials using water an neutral soap. Never any problem. They are very hard.
