    Hi team,

    I do not know as much about Speedies as about 30 mm chronometers, therefor I
    would like to hear your thoughts about the dials shown in the pics below.

    For comparison there is a replacement NOS example from watcho

    in full sunlight.jpg

    this is in full sunlight at noon

    And the second pic is in daylight environment at noon but taken in the shadow - white paper for reference on upper rim.

    I would rate #1 chocolate - could you agree? And #2 "on the edge" to chocolate?

    Your assessments are much appreciated.

    Hi.
    All the dials look black to me.
    It is quite hard without seeing them in person but usually I can tell from photos, some dials I see are on the turn and are most obvious around the sub dial areas, some are chocolate all over.
    Below is a photo of my 2998 and 105.002 in comparison the colour difference is obvious.
    Both the dials you have look in pretty good shape:thumbsup:
