      not only the Service one

      you can find two version of this "Long Crown" (16750 style) dial

      one is found in the late batches of 1675; this kind of dial is of regular production, and it has the "regular" Tritium in the indexes

      the second one (as you correctly wrote, Service one), has the same "graphic", but NO Tritium in the indexes

      it has a kind of yellowish and solid (not porous) "paste" + T25 print

      so always better to check in person this kind of dials; sometimes the Service ones are relumed for to cover this kind of "solid paste"

      after this batch of dial you will find the "Short Crown" Service dials (same "solid paste" in the indexes + T25 print)

      but this last "Short Crown" one is very well known, easy to recognize

      cheers from Italy


      why the system doesnt take the "minus" font ??
