    1st Annual Vintage Dial of the Year on a SECOND RATE BRAND Contest.

    Entries are open.

    I know it's early but I'm backing the chalk - Bubba LOUIE!

    Here are the rules:

    It's a dial.

    It's vintage.

    It's a second rate or WORSE brand.

    It's annual - ends 12/31/18 and we'll poll for the winner in January if any still cares or the hands down winner isn't obvious.

    Post'em!

    Second Rate seems a bit harsh!
    Maybe lower tier would be a better description -second rate seems to infer shoddiness or p*ss poor to me.
    That would put many dozens of brands below Patek straight into the trash can (or rubbish bin as we Brits say )

    I'm afraid that this thread, while interesting, could get bogged down in semantics. In other words, what is the definition of second-rate?

    In any case, here's some radium goodness from what I would characterize as a 'modest' brand:

    The Larex and Pierce are contenders. The Datum and Helbros are not, imo. They have nice dials but nothing we don't see all the time.

    So what is it? Very interesting and really congested dial. Here's a 1950s, 18k solid gold case with Venus cal. 170 movement. And a ca. 1950 with Venus ca. 188. Both dials are original.
