    Adam I wasn't suggesting it was a redial - only that I wondered if it a worth a redial which I am leaning against - but I appreciate you asking about my Daughter !

    And Yes you can continue to have 'fun' with radium at my expense !

    But for you and Tomcat - I found new and improved Geiger Counter for Vintage Watch 'guys' - it uses the same technology for detecting radiation, but when it displays the CPM counts for Vintage Watches - it divides by 6.278845 !!! Cheers ! S

    Would I get that dial - redialed?
    Very good question.
    First I would not have bought the watch like that (again sorry)
    and if I had, I would look for a new old stock dial or a better one from another watch.

    But as the dial stands, it is pretty hopeless.

    I do not think its taking up "thread time", if so a mod can cut it.
    Its discussion on a watch.

    You asked an opinion, and I gave it. Nothing personal.

    I too have bought a lot of junk in my day, and been much harder chastised and criticized by my two mentors.
    Did I feel up set? Yes a little, but I am glad they told me. That's how we learn.

    Of course if you just want 'likes' you can enjoy that way as well.

    Sincerely
    adam
