2Tone Illinois Guardsman Engraved Bezel

I found this one on eBay. The pictures were terrible, and it was sold as a lot with 2 beat up ladies watches.

Here are some before pictures.

And after servicing and having the dial refinished.

"Before/after" shots tell it all-you can't argue with them-nice work!

I agree very nice work indeed. The dial looks great too, was it expensive to be redone.

Thank you. International Dial charged me $45.50 (including shipping) to refinish the dial. I posted pictures of this watch on multiple websites. Most seem to agree that ID must have the original dies for this dial, because it's just about perfect.
