    Who put that there ?

    Those of you who've seen my previous ramblings will probably know I'm not a fan of the 'wonky' date window; but....
    Whilst browsing a well-known auction site for hidden treasures, I happened upon something that I'd not seen before and was intrigued enough to put in a bid. 99p + postage, and 3 days later, this arrives in the post:

    It's a bit rough and a non-runner; but with a bit of luck I can sort that out (I've brought worse back to life). Not opened it up yet, so best not get too cocky
    I've seen date windows in all positions at and between 3 & 6, and a few 'big dates' at 12; but never one there before. Any one else have any date windows in 'unusual' positions ?

    I've seen one photo of the date window there before but I think there was a load of other stuff on the dial to avoid. This is plain mad!

    It just looks like a case of: Oh damn, we forgot the date window; quick get the apprentices to do one
