As the auction says, that watch sure is stunning..... ;)  Those roman numerals are just a generic font that they can add to any watch, and alot of the dealers are having their dials done with them just because Rom Num's are popular right now.  I have seen nearly identical looking redials on Bulova, Benrus and all sorts of other names that would have originally just had a plain dial that they decided to spice up.  There is some waviness to the numerals and the word SWISS at the bottom looks like some little kid wrote it on there with a marker.  Attention to originality and detail was not this redialer's strong suit ha

ultra--i was thinking the same thing about the "swiss" on the dial!! looks like someone freehanded it as an afterthought. it is located in an odd position also. yeah, isnt it just stunning.  JON P
