Landed this one today but can't find a comparable dial. Anyone a clue?
Looks pretty damned good to me.
I’ve seen these dials with faceted Arabic numerals on Connies for auction in the UK.
A variation on the fully Arabic dials.
Can’t remember if I’ve seen one (specifically) on an .004 but fairly sure I’ve seen them on a dogleg.
Nice case and dial - congratulations.
Thanks. Don't doubt the dial itself btw but was not sure whether it was delivered in this watch
My opinion may not hold as much weight as more experienced and respected members here but just to reassure you, I have seen this exact configuration before and it appeared original then and now.
Ok thanks! Much appreciated. Weird thing is that the medaillon is silver and not gold
Quite right, a gold cap watch would have a gold medallion, a SS watch (regardless of gold dial furniture ) will have a SS medallion.
Edited to correct silly typo.
Not quite sure what you mean here.
I agree that on these 2nd generation Constellations (1959-69), gold capped watches had gold medallions. However, some early steel cases also had gold medallions.
Just trying to clarify.
Quite right too.
My SS 14381 has a gold medallion.
I was specifically referring to the OP’s watch.
For this specific case reference (168.004), I agree. The medallion should be steel.
Very lovely piece!
Thanks again guys!
