Spectacular Vintage 1930s Illinois Whippet 3/0 size (large) Wrist Watch Amazing Military Dial
This Illinoise Whippet 3/0 size factory original watch (except for a replacement strap and maybe crown); is one of the most exceptional pieces I've seen. Not only is it exceptional due to its age and preserved state; but also because of the amazing tonneau shaped triple hinged case (looks like stainless steel, not noted but not base metal). A super rare style case. Looking at other examples, it does appear that these watches had large crowns. I do not know if this is an original crown or not; however, it operates great and looks right sized for the case. The military style dial is simply amazing and unusual on a deco period piece. Note, the higher grade 17 jewel movement was used instead of the normal 15 jewel. Serviced and keeping great time, this is almost a museum grade example.
