I looked up the serial number of a watch I recently inherited from my granfather, but actually originally belonged to his father. The SN is 19558018 and my question is about the dial face... I can't seem to find any info about it or find any other dials that look anything like it. It is a quite exquisite dial comparitively to the other offerings around the same time. The numbers around the dial all face inward towards the center, unlike most that read the numbers in an upright fashion. There is a very pretty 'scrolling' two-tone design that weaves around the face and in between the numbers. The second hand is cut out over the '6' and the minutes read in black around the outside of the dial. Does anyone know anything more about this? Was it some type of custom dial? (It does have the Elgin name on it though) Is there some type of dial catalog/database?

By the way, the case is also a Philadelphia Watch Case Co. Crown case (guaranteed 25 years!). Beautiful design on the case with an engraved 'B' initial for the family surname. The watch is beautiful, I just want to know more about it!
