    yeah and have seen a fair few dials with different one off's pattern for company's , events and such like so come have had a run made for some event say 50 like think norm minimum production some will do 25 maybe of dials as does look well done but does look transfer printed maybe so yeah reckon pw of origin possible even the dial come from a modern quartz/ mech Russian / Chinese that would be a very strong possibility

    I did a reverse ww/ to pw from bits found

    yeah was my point for the money you could get a chrono

    yes day / date / 24 hr subs.

    seem's back in the 90's this brand was all russian using slave movements but the last ten or so years they use Chinese movements and cheap ones at that the same movements probably in a 20 mech used in say like the Jaguar ones we all went mad for on the mwc a few years back

    **** lets play a game - new or vintage or franked ****

    Total redial, think what a 50s watch with a light dial would look like by now: how about

    Also look at the 4s on the minutes track, should be open
    This is another fantasy dial, but they got that detail right

    Id avoid
