Ultra bad ass thread, Mike. Incredible posts all.

And I found the panda dial on my vintage Precimax to be just what the doctor ordered.

This thread is approaching classic status. :fro:

Black enameled silver guilloche dial. Radial pattern with cross hatched sub-dials.

Very interesting post & seeing all the different ways sub-dials are treated / integrated into a main dial.
