    Automatic Wittnauer 10k GF bezel - redial?

    I bought this an estate sale. It runs, but needs a crown. I did not pay a ton for it. Is the dial a redial? Has anyone seen a font like this on similar Wittnauer's. If it is a redial, where does it fall on the quality continuum?

    Thanks

    I'm not an expert in redials but to me, the logo looks a little uneven and a couple of the markers seem to be too close to the lume dots. Could be the lighting also. ????

    To me, it's name looks sloppy , also the day wheel is off. I'm guessing there is no crown also, or a very tiny one
    Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.

    Thanks for the feedback guys.

    When I look under an eye loop, the writing is crisp and the letters are evenly spaced. No bleeding as far as I can tell that would suggest a shaky hand. I just had not seen this font used before.

    Yes, it needs a crown. I will look for a signed crown. Would this model have had a GF crown to match GF bezel or a SS crown to match the caseback?
