    hi, has anybody ever seen a unicompax like the one in the picture? I have seen compura with telemeter scale but cannot find unicompax like that, perhaps am not looking properly

    Looks like a redial - too many inconsistencies across fonts (a lot of which are wonky), bad "Universal Geneve" text, bad overlapping numbers and lines.

    Wow, I really thought it was a redial. I still think most of the print is sloppy. Any reason why it's printed as such, @LouS ?

    I can understand why one would think it is a redial. However, it is correct and a great one at that. Beautifully preserved. I would love to hold it. Dials like that do not come up often. Bernardino would be salivating if something like that was presented at his shop. Nice catch ... :thumbsup:
