I have a nice 14k Touchon minute repeater with a movement based on a LeCoultre ebauche. What is unusual about this watch is its dial, which has a finish I have never seen in any other pocket watch. Except for the finish, the dial is a typical white enamel dial with Breguet Arabic numerals. Its subseconds dial is not sunk or just barely sunk. But what makes the dial unique is its crinkly finish. It is very hard to photograph the finish, but it is original to the dial, very uniform in texture, and obviously a design element rather than a manufacturing defect. I am hoping that one of you (Philip Poniz, are you the one?) will be able to cast some light on this unique finish, e.g., what it was called, who used it, and how common it is.
