Dial Repair Question
Having looked over the very helpful material here on the site, I've come to the conclusion that repairing this dial is well beyond me. The question is whether it can be saved at all.
This one came off a Hamilton 924 marked similarly for Mr. Russell, a jeweler and watchmaker from Weatherford (just west of Fort Worth). He also served a stint as mayor (1914-1918) and was involved in getting a railroad to come to town.
These Texas private labels are hard to find (at least for me), and I'd like to save this dial if at all possible.
