Need a dial, but a nice Marquis, after all...

I always enjoy your beautiful photography!

The "Marquis" is a model I'm very fond of, and it looks as if you got a lovely case. (You can probably improve the dial with cleaning, but patina doesn't generally bother me -- particularly if it's an original dial.)

I agree on the dial. It's really quite nice.
The original for me is always preferred.

I do like what appears to be the original dial. If anything a bit of time with Rodico and it would clean up.

Well, I'm just looking for a better original dial, on mine it can hardly see the Illinois logo. The dial was cleaned, maybe too much!
I do prefer the patina and original, instead a redone one.

Very nice! There is a Marquis dial on Ebay now, I believe. But, I think it was an old redial perhaps.

That is a wonderful Marquis Dragos! I bet Fred has a dial if you need one! Original, yes but it is quite worn down. Shoot him an email.
