    Hi. I have an old Pilot from the 50's with I guess what collectors are calling "the bull's eye" dial. It's in bad shape cosmetically - the crown is worn, the dial scratched, and the hands are replacements I'm guessing. Still runs very well. I've seen a few on sale sites and this version always seems overly redialed. Could any of you gentlemen point me to photos of pristine original "bull's eye" versions?

    Thanks CaptainWinsor. When was that catalog published? Blue hands weren't original, huh?

    Late 1940s when the Sporto was first introduced. The hands on yours look more like 1950s as they are broader than ones in my catalog but you never know
