    Nice and plausibly correct... I defer to those with deep knowledge of the early period.

    Yes ... from I was able to reference it looks it might be ok but there are members with personal databases that might shed more light.

    I don't think that dial is correct or original.

    Thank you! for all!

    One more UG question, this is a cal. 130 movement. strangely missing the Valjoux stamp, otherwise it looks good. Is it correct? UG 130.jpg

    I think I read that it was early days for double pusher ... not sure it matters .... but again I defer. Personally if you own this already and got it for a good number I’d just enjoy it.

    If someone were to make a perfect replica of a Valjoux 72, down to the details of finishing, puts it in the correct watch with a correct second-party bridge, would it be a fake?

    Thanks! So just an unmarked Valjoux mainplate? UG 130 is the Val. 72.6?

    I agree, but no clear picture of the damage at the back of the case.
