    What a difference a dial makes!

    Show your watches where a dial variant makes a huge difference*
    It could be a simple colour variation, or the same movement housed in very different cases
    Two Poljot 2612 alarms:

    The 90s classic design

    Let's see yours!

    I should probably spare you all from having to see every version of the standard Diastar that I have.

    ....taking the name of the thread literally/joylessly....

    ...the variations in the dials you've posted thus far don't make a huge *difference*, in the sense that they *all* look extraordinary and exotic, whereas in OhDee's OhPee one dial is very sensible and restrained, but the other is all oh wow I wasn't expecting that.....

    ....Ok, carry on....
