- - but without the date codes - who's guess? A pattern is emerging where we seem to know that things like dials (small and light) were easily shipped from one continent to another to be used for local assembly, but dates for this - goodness only knows! Presumably the Phillipines couldn't or didn't produce dials locally.
Does anyone even know exactly where "Dial England" dials were produced? AFAIK, one of the few producers of dials in the UK would have been SMITHS, and I suppose it's conceivable they may have made under sub-contract for Timex, or maybe Timex DID make their own dials somewhere in England, but there was always certainly space at Dundee to have done this in-house.
I'm not helping really, am I?
