I was in touch with Zodiac, they gave me a contact person who services vintage models, maybe that person knows more about this.

Thx for the info mate. I will let you know if I find more info about this. These dials are really rare, maybe I will keep mine in that case and just get correct hands :)


Is this only typical for dials that have Swiss T 25 the marking?

I saw this variety for T 25 dials only.

Do you have more info about these dials from your source, where he or she aquired them?

Spare dials come mainly from Switzerland. From new old stocks. Different suppliers. No details revealed from the sellers. Probably they simply don't want to disclose details.

Is this only typical for dials that have Swiss T 25 the marking? I see some other differences in the other print as well when i compare other dials. The text Automatic is more lined and the kerning between the characters in Zodiac is different. Do you have more info about these dials from your source, where he or she aquired them?
Yes, but that could mean that all dials have the numbers under the lume and have the lume printed on top after the lume has been applied.

I ran across several Sea Wolf dials with damaged lume on markers. There are no printed numbers underneath. Only on top.

The "irregular" dials are just service dials with no lume applied?
May be.

The "irregular" dials are just service dials with no lume applied? This is a divers watch after all, so lume is kinda mandatory. That could also explain why the numbers on the "irregular" dials are not centered, they arent meant to been seen because they are covered under the lume.
are the numbers printed on the lume by the way?
On regular dial with lume applied, the numbers printed on top of it in black paint.
On these "irregular" dials, the numbers applied directly on dial paint inside triangles, using contrast paint. Black for white dial and white for black dial.
