    The Getty is a really nice movement, the nicest i think Illinois made.

    I do believe this will be a keeper.
    So , will it be hard to find a new proper dial for this, and maybe a new hour hand, as this one looks bent.

    Illinoise made a lot of the Getty style movements in all grades
    and qualities. I do like this movement configuration.

    The dial and hands shouldn't be too hard.
