    Sandwich dials - brands using them

    In my current watch hunt efforts, I've become very fond of sandwich dials. I see them on Panerais and the Obris Morgan Branco (the darling of the Affordables forum), but I don't see 'em much, if anywhere else.

    What other brands and styles are using the sandwich dial?

    Cheers!

    Daniel

    I know there's a few more out there but the only one I can think of at the moment besides what you've mentioned is the Steinhart Nav B Uhr Premium line model.

    I believe there have been a few Ocean 7 watches offered with sandwich dials?

    That Steinhart is nice. I forgot Lumtec.
    The RXW and Precista are Panerai-style homages.

    Not what you probably want to hear - but I am not a fan of the sandwich style of dials.

    They cast a shadow on the numerals and in bright even dim light I do not like it. I would suggest you look closely before dropping the bucks!

    Just being the Devil's advocate here. Good luck either way.

    I have found that some people just like to hear themselves typing.

    You think I'm condescending...?? Do you even know what that means... ??

    I'm just wondering who uses sandwich dials, in the hopes that I can find a watch that doesn't look like a dinner plate or a hubcap.

    I appreciate your advice on the shadows. That makes sense; and something I hadn't considered.
