    Rolling eyes Mathematical repainted dial

    I know is against all common sense to buy a repainted black dial watch...

    i think this one is at least, a funny repainting job...

    WATCHES SPECTACULAR CUERVO Y SOBRINOS. MATHEMATICAL!!!! - eBay (item 120624255762 end time Sep-27-10 21:05:16 PDT)

    what you think?

    by the way, i was looking for vintage cuervo y sobrinos.... well investigating them... cuban importers and assemblers... 40's - 50's...

    That is a very cool dial. I would purchase if the price was right.

    Re: Mathematical repainted dial

    the vast majority of CyS available on the web are redials - not to my taste. In particular, the "Unicos Importadores" is applied very liberally, and unless the watch is a Roskopf or Longines (of which CyS really were sole importers), pretty much guarantees that the watch is a redial.

    It's the best I've seen on the jeweler.

    Hi. Its fine to post links to watches of interest on ebay or elsewhere for discussion purposes. What's against the rules is to draw attention to one that you (or a friend) have for sale.

    The dial reminded me of a modern Fortis:

    There is indeed a group in South America that is actively producing CyS redials. Several weeks ago I looked and it was almost impossible to find a genuine CyS on eBay.

    Some of the redials are genuinely silly. Like this one.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!
