Sedgman Redial

#1 Post by vanallard » Fri May 25, 2018 2:31 pm

Am I correct in thinking that the dial on this Sedgman has been refinished? The font is bigger than what one typically sees and the letters go straight across rather than in an arch as is seen in the catalogues.

Yes, it’s dial has been refinished - poorly.

Thanks for the feedback. It’s a shame, wouldn’t mind adding one of these to the collection.

It could be redone again to look more proper. The tricky part is the pearled track.
