    I don't know if the dial was originally available in that colour, seems in rather suspiciously good condition.
    For reference, the hands on this one of mine have not been repainted... I am not so sure about the dial, however.

    I must have posted it previously as it was already on my Photobucket account and I remember discussing the calibre with Dr. Ranfft. (I tend to remember exchanges with him as they are so rich with information .)

    Hi -

    I think the "11" is original, otherwise the dial numbers have been...how shall I put it..."refreshed". The rest of the dial looks good...lovely watch!
