    At least 16. I have not pulled the dial to see if there might be 17, as some grade 116 movements have.

    Not a PL, but unsigned (maybe intended to be a PL?) which is a little unusual, and for stare and compare with Dave's RRK grade 116 ...

    Very interesting, Dave! Does it have a dial? The key feature that distinguishes the grade 114 from the grade 116 is that the grade 116 has raised gold jewel settings. The grade 114 has flat jewel settings.

    I don't have a good pic of the dial at the moment, but it's an HC movement, single sunk, large fancy script signed Illinois Watch Co dial, arabic numerals, with a red 5 min chapter numerals, moon hands and fancier tail on the seconds hand - so more upscale for the dial and hands.

    Hands are like those shown in your post #929

    Posts #880 and #484 also have the same hands combinations, but I can find no other examples of the single sunk dial and script font!
