12 407 custom dial
If anyone can help me with info regarding my South Bend 407 I would be very grateful. It has a custom dial unlike anything I've seen before. The watch itself is in terrific condition. Sadly, I'm not much of a photographer. The serial number lookup shows this to be a 1910 15 jewel 12s. Nothing is said about the dial. Please see attachment. It also runs well and is on time. Just an odd looking fellow. Thanks, Mike Penson

I can only guess but it looks like a metal dial that was originally produced ~1914. The center looks like it has been hand engraved. Perhaps some school type project or maybe just fooling around. Is this from watch serial # 630726?

Yes, thats the serial number. Thanks for your input.
