    Hi,

    I've got a 12s dial with the word "Waltham" in script. It's not quite the same as a Maximus style script dial, so I'm wondering what this might have been for?http://users.xdelphia.net/~bleubug/walt.jpg Any ideas? Picture of the dial has been attached.

    These script dials seem to be fairly common on watches exported to the UK. The sunk seconds with the track outside the bit is a UK kind of thing also. The dials were available to anyone who wanted them, of course.
