with no disrespect to the OP, they're pristine in large part because, with the possible exception of the steel Roman numeral example, they aren't original. Regards, Tony C.
I was simply stating facts, and there shouldn't be anything controversial about facts. Any collector with experience with 30T2Rg Chronometres can easily tell that those are either refinished or later replacement dials. Regards, Tony C.
