    Bought at internet auction without seeing the movement or watch come to that. Taking a chance I know but the case and dial was so good. looks like it hasn't been worn much and its got the guilloche dial I really like. Its got the hallmark and a squirrel so 14k solid gold but it is a snap back and I can't get the back off. working so well and keeping excellent time. The vintage watch maker I use is so inundated that he won't/can't take the watch in for a service for 6 weeks. Its frustrating not knowing the caliber and case and year. Anyone care to hazard an educated guess. This is only my third constellation purchase and I've never held a bumper watch. When i move this one around I can feel something moving akin to a bump so is it safe to assume that it is a bumper movement.

    Looks like a 2782 powered by a 354 movement.
    Nice watch.

    A lot of 2652s comes with applied logo as do many printed one. I believe it's the only reference that has both styles in abundance. Others may occasionally have a rare one.

    Hoi, so you are saying that those dials were later replacement or just plain replacements coming from ref 2782 installed in a 2652 case?

    One last point, I have never seen a Ref. 2782 or Ref. 2852 "no-name" Globemaster. Only ones I've seen are either Ref. 2648 or Ref, 2652.

    So I think the dials on the two watches above are original, applied logo or not.
