All the recent talk about the tropical dials made me pull this old GMT-Master dial out of my spare parts bin:
I had this dial for about a decade, but -- because of the "discoloration" -- never thought that I would be using it for anything else than a RSC trade in... Now, I can see how "chocolate-colored" dials can actually be attractive in certain light.
So, the big question is:
a) An outright fake,
b) An older redial, or:
c) A genuine (although mishandled) "Tropical" dial?
I did a few searches and found a few dials with similar attributes (i.e. similar color, similar font style, similar crown style, etc.) but not a single 100% match so far... Any help would be appreciated!
