Very interesting...

great comparison. I ve always wondered about these dials. Why they are like that. The patina on yours is really beautifull. You always find the best examples !! Cheers

Still missing some Rolex GMTs, Steven ...

Great 1675

Love your post, Nico. I have seen references to a radial dial but never knew what the differences were when compared to a "normal" 1675 dial. You highlighted the nuances of the radial dial perfectly and I look forward to reviewing your future 1675 posts! ...

Here is a photo of my "new" vintage 1675

I am digging the patina on this dial! Almost tropical; very warm in the frigid city of Chicago where I am right now! Cheers, Rob...

Very nice example, Robert.
