I was wondering if some vintage dials did not have the accent in the word GENEVE. Was this more common during a specific time period or was it just a random thing? Was it more common on specific dials? Your help is much appreciated!
Thanks for getting back to me. The silver dots look better in person than in the picture. I have seen 2 other vintage examples where the case was 18K with gold markers but silver minute dots. Perhaps other loungers could comment if they have seen this on dials. The movement is the caliber 1019/1. I'll post a picture of the movement soon. As mentioned before, I bought this from a watch dealer/store via EBAY. I got a great deal on the watch only because the rotor was not attached to the movement...the watchmaker could not find VC parts to attach the rotor. The watch came with the unattached rotor. I contacted VC and they told me it could cost up to $2000 for a full overhaul, polish and attaching the rotor with the correct parts. I'm not complaining because I got a good deal. Right now the watch works as a manuel wind watch. I'm happy. I'm interested to find out how rare my silver dot minute markers are with gold markers...any information is much appreciated!
Forgot to add that the gold markers do have small scratches on them and that the dial does have a superficial scratch on it.
