    App. 1965. Those military style Favre Leuba Sea Chief watches with a two tone chapter ring dial and raised luminous (Tritium ) markers have been made in the 60ties. There have been white and black dials with California dials and regular numerals.



    The later Sea-Chiefs (1969) had indices already.
    Kind regards

    Although California dials do zilch for me, it is still a fine piece!

    Wear it in good health and good company, Mike - congratulations!
