    How can that not be a redial? It must be a redial. Surely.

    What do others think?

    It looks like two pieces of wet newspaper stuck together.

    Has someone claimed that this is not a redial?

    What is really special about this example is the "screw-down case back" that was designed to look exactly like a snap-on case back.

    The dials are intriguingly similar but it is IMHO impossible they ever remotely would have had a chance to pass Cartier quality control. Given the close serial and being the same reference I assume they are of the same batch. My conclusion is that this may have been a batch which was originally sold by Cartier but that by some kind of weird coincedence they were both redialled by the same, not overly talented, party.

    The German tank number approach suggests a total production of 75. Sounds sensible.
