    I've seen quite a few of these in the late 1990's. Can't remember , who made this batch. Either Bethge in Germany or Soni in the UK. Not well executed.

    You mean batch of dials? Very coarse indeed, in any event.

    yes, and It is serious problem coz the movement is the heart, all hand made without cnc,,
    even to make one now is difficult,.. and we can do it by CNC, ... however , I won't recommend to collect this piece

    Mr DirtyDozen , Thank you for your sharing of 3870 ref. 13zn ,

    however , It is rare model and I can't see any on sales...
    would like to collect one , coz the case size , the stepped case, and the pusher , for me is so attractive , simple and smooth ,,,

    this is not a original dial , before 1940 , the font is taller and smaller , moreover, the subdial 6 , will be close
