Hi Stefano,

thanks for the scans - impressive als always. happy.gif

I animated two of them to spot similarities and differences. For a better comparison the white one is inverted.

GMT-Master 6542 white and black animated

Cheers
Roland

hate to break up this party but can someone please explain...

February 5 2010, 8:10 AM 

the serifs on the OCC? I have never seen a 6542 dial with that. also, the "serifs" on the 5 second markers? I guess they go along with the 6 and 9 o'clock markers.
there are different 'r's" everywhere?
I am not even going to get into the "swiss" at 6 o'clock.

Sorry to be a party pooper but I do not believe this is correct...

also, let's examine the date hole...

February 5 2010, 8:20 AM 

can we compare to original black 6542 OCC dials, please? the "step" is very pronounced, like a service dial.
early OCC dials look different, to me anyway.

Well quite ..

February 5 2010, 9:07 AM 

I agree there is no other way, falling ink sounds naff, so bent and dripping it'll have to be then. happy.gif lolololol.

Not breaking up anything John, i'll try to explain it to you..;-)

The example used as comparison is from earlier batch 6542...

Layer on layer; text print is 100 % same johnny-boy wink.gif

&

The swiss writing & serief 5 minute markers is the same as we see on rare '54-'55 examples... (courtesy Darker Imperator )

&

The serief in 5 minutes markers & the "swiss: writing we also see on other early sportsmodels... (courtesy M.Pisani )
[linked image]

&

To be honest, i've had my reservations due to the swiss print, at first i thought when whole print is correct
the minutetrack and swiss will also be correct but it didn't made sense to me as it's different / non serief..

So i thought about the possibility that it was maybe produced later as swiss was more 1675-ies to me but Proffesor Pisani
teached me to look back, to earlier production, once done that, everything is 100 % clear for me...

It's interesting to say the least...not often we come across a VERY rare dialversion. I have BIG respect the way Stefano has
handled the putcome from this rare bird..Only question that remains for me is, is there anything engraved on the caseback...personally i think it's clean but maybe it will be shown one day... wink.gif

Hope this helps you to understand the dial of the Albino as Stefano calls it.
