How much does your numbers vary in your cases?

Are they all almost the same?

I'm not seeing photos of anything but this first watch and the one I've posted. I'm just looking to see examples so I can ponder further.

It's not a challenge to your theory that I'm attempting here. :)

What I have seen mainly were: 50, 60. 70. 80. 90 and a few 110s. 90 and 110 only on hunters, 50 and 60 only on open faces. And 24 and 28 at ladies.
There was one exception where one was stamped 90 and it weighed only 94 gramms according to the seller.

OK then... now that's a lot of evidence that I simply hadn't seen. Seems like the most plausible explanation for this one. For 3-digit numbers or Alpina in general, seems like should also check against movement if the weight doesn't make sense.
