...is original. I've seen this style with arrowheads before, not common.

Good..

I was holding my breath that it is original - just too sharp to be a re-finish...
I have had a difficult time finding a dial EXACTLY like it - seen some that are stated re-finish.
I just picked this one up last Sunday, had it cleaned by a friend and it's keeping reasonably good time.
Wears much bigger than I would have thought.
Now I'm torn - should I keep it or let someone else enjoy it...?

Regards,
Chris

Since no one is holding a gun to your head -- enjoy it for awhile and if it doesn't sing to you, put it on the chopping block... wink.gif

I'll bet the odd dial patina is more attractive to the naked eye than it seems in this blow-up shot.

Yeah, being farsighted has its advantages.
Dial looks pretty good from 18 inches.
