LAES EVENEG triviality

I have a minor curiosity that, while not interfering with sleep, will haunt me until my ADD kicks in again.  On my openworked piece, less than two years old, I've inadvertently noticed that, under magnification, the Geneva seal is on the reverse and is spelled EVENEG.  Can anyone offer a history or reason, fabricated or not, as to why this is?  Is it tradition?  Is it because the seal is on the reverse.  I am using a steroscopic microscope, so the image is not reversed, i.e., the time reads correctly.  So, if anyone has the 'time', I, and perhaps others, would appreciate your indulgence.
Regards to all,
Squell.

I'll attempt a scan.  Squell.
The worst day in my life. My wife has been correct for 25 years.

I AM the Stupidest man on the planet.  I've already contacted Vacheron.  I'm returning the watch.  I don't deserve to retain custody of one of their finest pieces.  The master engraver's have pulled a fast one on me.  Apparently, it is only while holding the piece upside-down that GENEVE appears to be reversed.  Their genius is fully on display when, by simply turning the piece right-side up, GENEVE reads correctly.  I am so embarassed that I can only hope that someone has gotten a good laugh.  I guess I'll be using my XEMIT from now on.  Humbled and apologetic, Squell.

Photo for posterity.
