This antique Burlington Special is faced with a beautiful single sunk porcelain dial. These fine dials were made using two Copper plates soldered together and then baked with many layers of Silica giving the dial the deep rich porcelain finish. The dial has the Burlington Special in the desired Burlington stylized font. Then around the outer circumference we have the Arabic numerals every five-minute marker highlighted in red with a sunken sub chapter for the second hand. The dial does have one craze line, the only issue and still shows beautifully. This fine dial is highlighted with beautifully heat treated blued steel spade whip style hands.
