    Another dial check please.

    Guys I’m looking at this on an auction site.
    Anyone tell whether it’s an original dial?
    Thanks in advance.

    Looks like a redial to me. Too crude throughout.

    Look at the watch you own, then look at the other one and you will see some differences.

    The "dash" above the "e" is called an accent grave.

    You've learned it, you can't unlearn it.

    From Wikipedia...

    "The accent mark was called βαρεῖα, the feminine form of the adjective βαρύς (barús), meaning "heavy" or "low in pitch". This was calqued (loan-translated) into Latin as gravis, which then became the English word grave."

    Looks like it came originally from Greek, through Latin and then to French. It's heavy, man.
