A gorgeous watch with a timeless look:

 

As mentioned with previous timepieces this watch company made the most attractive looking watches of their time...

 

This beautiful Illinois watch was picked up as a movement only when it first appeared on a cold lot somewhere in the lands of south New Jersey.  Finding a watch without a case usually leaves it vunerable to being damaged, luckily this beautiful engine was not.  After sourcing a proper case that would have adorned this watch, it was a turn-key reunion that went back to serving its timely purpose.  

 

This watch has a beautiful "blind-man" dial and as you obviously tell why its called that from the numerals.  The engine powering this watch is a reliable model 7 movement that Illinois made for a long time.  As far as we see, this movement is ticking strong and planning to run for another century.
