This just as I received it. Same movement, same case maker. the marking around the the second hand is different

The dial fits in the same way as Mickeys.

The dial seems to be finished in the same way.

It does look like a match to the Elgin, It does not match the watch in the Collectors Book,
My case back number, is 230 later that Mickeys, which might lead me to believe that they were from the same batch?
Maybe the factory had a group of old stock watches re dialed to modernise them.

PS Mickey, did you manage to contact Darin?
