Here is the dial I just got back and re-installed on my 1925 Studebaker 12s order watch. International Dial Co did the refinishing.

Hi Ernie

Did you have to remove the numbers or did refinisher do that for you.

Nice Dial.

Keith:

The refinishers did it all. I sent them the old dial in very bad condition. I am very pleased with it.

Here is the dial from my South Bend 120. At first I thought this was a grade 121 because the serial number falls within the range of numbers for a 121 in the South Bend Database. But this watch is a 120. A 121 grade does not have a seconds chapter.

Tom Brown: Great looking Monty dial. The dial (as I refer to it) is from the 1917 catalog, pg. 69, and referred to on that pg. as 5147. Hence 17-69-5147. Here's the LINK.

Edward Kitner: Average price? There's not really an average price. Very Fine Enamel dials that are rare can fetch $100-$200. The best metal dials, IMHO, aren't worth more than $25 except for the ones with the attached gold numbers.

Ernie Loga: International did a good job on that. I'm impressed that they got the sub-seconds pretty much dead on. Hope I'm not being rude, but how much did they charge?

Larry Buchan: Rare Dial. Very cool that you got the reference nomenclature. I would call it a 17-69-2137 because I always try to use the earliest possible reference, but a 25-02-2157 is the same as a 17-69-2137.

Tony Dukes: The condition of that dial looks superb. That would be a 17-69-647. This is the dial that Dr. O.B.Frye thought was the signature South Bend dial. Not for any particular reason but he just thought it looked the best. He called the script "Gazely" (like the animal as an adjective).


For my own personal contribution here's a fancy 16s dial. I just call them "Fancy", note whether the numerals are arabic or roman and whether the script for the "South Bend" is block or what I call gothic/old-english. This would just be Fancy-roman-block.

Hi Frank: International dial charged me $34.00 for the refinish on the dial. I took a National first with the watch at the Studebaker International Meet in Cedar Rapids, Iowa in July.

These two dials that are off a 207 and 215, both are worse for wear. I would like to get them done but not sure if we have people whom re finish dials like the USA or where would i start to look. Phone book may be? The one on the left looks more fancy than the other and looks more impressive.
