16 size double-sunk enamel Roman numeral dial private label signed "Globe Jewelry Co, Globe Arizona". Dial has four feet on its rear as correct for the earlier style of 16 size movements. Arizona private labels of any type are quite rare and I've only seen a few, and this particular signature is particularly interesting as the Globe Jewelry Co advertised themselves as official watch inspector for the Gila Valley, Globe, and Northern Railway (now known as the "Arizona Eastern Railway", and this advertisement can be found in the August 10th, 1905 issue of the "Arizona Silver Belt" newspaper). Good looking dial but has some scattered outer chapter hairlines, and dial also has two small surface flakes near its outer edge at the 7:30 area.Please check out my other items this week for more great watches and watch related items for sale. - Check out the NAWCC!
