This classic Illinois Railroad Dial has the classic stylized Illinois Arabic font numerals. This Illinois dial is referred to as double sunk, we have a raised outer chapter for the stylized Arabic numerals around the outer circumference. Then we have a recessed center chapter for the Illinois logo and a recessed sub chapter for the second hand. Truly the classic Illinois Railroad Dial both beautiful and the height of functionality. This dial is actually made using 3 pieces of metal soldiered together, then baked with many layers of silica giving the dial the depth and that rich glass like porcelain finish.
