    Cortebert ATP watch authenticity

    Good day. I am new on the forum and a novice collector of British WW2 military issued ATP watches. I recently purchased a Cortebert ATP and would like to ask the forum experts to please advise me if it is an authentic ATP.
    I have already referenced my Cortebert against examples shown on the internet and noticed that the seconds dial on my watch has a single marked rim around it where the one on the reference sight has two with vertical lines marking 5 second intervals. Also the Cortebert logo font on my watch is bolder than the thinner type logo on the watch shown on the reference site. Being unsure of authenticity I kindly asked the forum experts for their assessment.

    The dial has been refinished. The font is a bit crude and the outer minute track is also incorrect. The correct dial has railroad-track style tracks around the sub-dial and the outside of the dial.
