Hmmm..

Yet another "Tilden" dial variation, eh? (Or perhaps there are 2+ glass from the same general timeframe... with very similar sized and shaped proportions??)

Got crystal specs? Looks to be a flat bezeled perimeter under the glass?? If not, perhaps a Belmont???

I thought the Tildon glass discussion was settled a couple months ago!

Wayne,

 

Glass YES... Most of (?) the models they fit, yes. Model nuances (?) perhaps in a decade, when someone finds the Jeweler's catalogs, and/or a HUGE stash of Bully ads, someone started collecting long ago?!?

My point is that I have glass for 3- 4 that are nearly the same proportions... so unless first measured/verified to be the same specs... this might easily be yet another model, or the (only?) correct Tildon ID??? (Even with the SAME specs, and a diff dial, etc.) LOL...

I frankly don't recall every image or illustration presented to date, off hand. (Maybe only 50%+ of them???)

Tildon is a Westfield model, as seen in this advert.

 

 

As seen, if turned on it's side, crystal is the same.
