JLC Triple Date - unusual dial

Postby daniel5050 » Fri Jul 17, 2020 4:36 pm

Hi Zaf,

I found two different triple date examples with the same dial configuration that you show on p. 61 of your book, although all three are slightly different (hand configurations are all different, and the two examples I'm showing here don't have the "fabrique en suisse" text, while the one on p. 61 does). I haven't seen a ton of examples with this particular dial, so was curious - do you have a point of view on which of these three is the "original" configuration?

Thank you!

I'm not sure I understand the question. What do you mean by "original" configuration?

The Fab. Suisse dials are usually for watches sold in France.

To me the bottom example you show has the wrong hour and minute hands.

Thanks Zaf, believe you just answered it. Separate from the fabrique en suisse question, which I now understand, I was asking which hands were correct for this dial - the dauphin hands , syringe or the example on p. 61 of your book (I'm honestly not sure what they're called).
