I have a vintage Memovox by JLC that I picked up that my watchmaker believes to be completely original and unrestored, however at the 12 oclock position on the dial you'll find a little notch in the shape of a V. I know for some people this always means a restored dial, but is it possible some vintage watches by JLC for instance could have been made this way at the factory?
The dial in question:

Here's a restoration thread from a member who bought a watch that was obviously never restored, and yet the dial had the same curious V-notch: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f2/jlc-memovox-given-new-life-long-230701.html
