    DALIL WATCH

    I Found this unique Swiss made Dalil Moslem watch in mint condition. Various watch features include a qiblat/compass, a rotating black outer dial ring with major cities of the wolrd and quranic verses on the rotating green outer dial ring. Date window is at 3 o'clock. The case design is also quite unusual and the watch diameter is 40mm.

    That is most interesting. The compass is obviously for locating Mecca (not sure whether even such low levels of magnetism are good for the movement, though.....). The case shows that it's late 1960s or from the 1970s (reminds me of the Omega Memomatic). One crown is obviously for the movement, another for the time zone ring - can I ask what the third is for?

    The top crown rotates the world time, the center to change the time and the lower rotates the green bezel with the quranic verses

    Thanks for the information. But that is rather strange - both verses are currently "the right way up" and if you rotate the bezel, both will go upside down.....
