I occasionally buy lots just to find out more about them, this dial intrigued me with the three hole plugs and the high quality engraving. Even more so now I have it. To remind us never to say never, the chapter ring seems always to have been screwed to the dialplate, no evidence of feet. There look to have been tabs on the dialplate for a 30 hour movement. The skill in casting these dialplates is remarkable, hardly a fault to be seen, the plate has not been planished but scraped and judging by the rag in the cutouts has always been this thin. The three plugs do not cover three holes but two, the third added for symmetry I guess though I don't know what the two holes were for. There may have been a date, and there was a modern movement once so perhaps there was a winding hole. The engraving is excellent. Three different spandrel styles, haven't decided which is original yet but favour the pair as they have original holes, even though they would be late for this style.
