    Nigel -

    These are great ideas for threads and lets make them happen! I'd say best to start a fresh thread for each topic on the board, and then we can link them here into the index among the other threads.

    For the model 3 movements I would suggest a possible focus on all watches with the jeweled fifth pinion. This would open things up beyond the 17 jewel movements to also include the 16 and 18 jewel in this model which are sometimes made in the same grades as the 17J. There are also a small number of 12 jewel model 3 with a jeweled fifth pinion and these would be neat to cover too.

    Fred, I would suggest adding this threadClick Here to the list. I did not notice anything about 18s Illinois Bunn Special watches in a previous thread, so that is why I started the new thread.

    I think this thread that tells about the Russ Snyder Illinois database and how to obtain it should be added ...

    http://mb.nawcc.org/showthread.php?t=45350

    ... and I think it deserves a special heading and link toward the top of the list.

    Super good call Fred! Russ Snyder's CD is a must have for any serious Illinois collector and is worth its weight in gold. I don't know how I ever lived without the previous rendition and am eagerly awaiting the arrival of the latest and greatest!

    This thread will be added to a special section labeled "Illinois Watch Co. Reference Tools" and will be added to the very top of the list!

    Regards,
