    Hi All,

    I was offered this watch for a decent price, but wanted to confirm the dial is original before buying. Looks fine to me, but I've been wrong before. I like the 2 tone textured dial.

    Also, what type of dial is it? I know hobnail dials look different, but is there any technical difference between guilloche/honeycomb/waffle or are they all the same thing?

    Same thing, more or less. "Hobnail" and circular (think subdials) are other forms of guilloche engraving.
