you forgot the most important piece there .. the "F" :D

Oops - unintentional, but doubtless a sign of good breeding :wink:
Does give me an excuse to use this site though (which I have been tempted to do many, many times):


to quote Roff a little more:

Just click on Roffs link above, it might change your life :wink:

Maybe we can find somewhere on the site to put it - it's a great piece and a great translation - thanks Fred :bow:

Feels like I'm replying to a vintage thread here...

Looking at a vintage Datora but have seen so many different dial and hand configurations, I can't tell whether it's genuine, re-dialled, touched up etc.

Any thoughts welcome:

Very old thread but that watch looks fine, assuming the obscured reference and serial hold no surprises.

Great, thanks. One thing I noticed is that the 5 'leaks' onto the sub-dial a bit. Wonder whether that suggests a re-lume at some point?
