Caliber stamp on dials (1925-1935)

#1 Post by MikeTheWatchGuy » Sat Jan 20, 2018 8:59 am

Have you noticed the dial-backs for dials made from 1925 to 1935 have the Caliber stamped on the back?

Some are difficult to see, others jump right out.

I've put together a random selection of dials from that era.

I don't know the extent to which this was done, but some example Calibers you'll see are 501, 157, 330, 179.
