Been thinking about this for a bit now and of course its a very complicated issue when you consider the differences / variants from the vintage to the Pre V, then Pre A right up to the A and BT series.
I've been a fan for a while and I've a couple of nice pieces. But what I notice is a strong preference which I have for a strong, yellow shade... orange is better. 201a NM is of course the "grail" LOL!
My question is, what makes a T dial desirable to you? A obviously cracked dial does not do it for me, neither does the "dirty dial" but I know fans of both.
Maybe this is as futile as arguing which is the better food, delicate tuna shashimi or a robust curry, obvious answer is both are different. But just thought I would check around
