This was on an 1888 16s. Not sure if this dial is appropriate for this model.

Can you Wallie co-experts enlighten me?

IF yes on the 88, which grade then?

Neil,

It doesn’t help much but the 1918 book calls it “Major” and offered SS and DS for 18s to 6s.

I have a one with somewhat lighter weight numbers on an 11.2m 16j model 99, but it is glass enamel with blue numbers, so pseudo-fancy. I don’t recall ever seeing one on an 88.

Also just noticed I have the lighter looking one on a model 94 Crest.

This one is similar and for an 18s mod '83. It is obviously DS and has beautiful blue print. The watch was retailed by CD Peacock of Chicago.

Merry, Happy, Jolly and especially Healthy to you all.

Mike - your note was helpful. I will reinstall the dial on a model 1899,

Great watch John!

Why not first check the dial feet? (there could have been an earlier switch.) If there are no other dial screw marks stick it back on the '88.

Jon -

The are no other screw marks on the feet, but the 88 it was on is a little rough.

I'll find a different 88 to put it on.

Interestingly, I bought another Blue version of this dial today. I now have 3 blue versions including the above posted. This one and a 16s PL which is double sunk for a jeweler in Brooklyn, NY on a '99.

This on is on an 0 size model 1900 grade 115.

Here is the blue 16s faux DS dial. The surface of this dial is a bit like a cream color...just off white.

"Lipshitz & Goldman" is pretty good isn't it. You can almost imagine walking into such a store in Brooklyn. It is now a "Rent-a-Center furniture store.

Yup, I know people with family names both Lipshitz and Goldman. There are a ton of folk named Lipshitz in Brooklyn.
