I'm looking to pull the trigger on my first truly vintage watch below - any thoughts or observations would be greatly appreciated.

My only concern at the moment is the sub-seconds dial. I've requested for better pictures but this is the best I got. No description of the movement provided but will rely on Eberhard's extract of the archive after purchasing the watch.

I don't know if the dial has been refinished, can't say about the movement because I am not knowledgeable about Eberhard.

SDAsurrey, where are you? He's the resident Eberhard expert around here, he's likely to be able to tell you more

I'm very suspicious of the dial. Look closely at the logo, particularly the size of the B in comparison with the position of the middle horizontal line of the E. Usually they are aligned, but here the B ends well below the horizontal line.

Ekel - thanks for the PM and your Eberhard question - yes, my 'vintage brothers' usually send Eberhard questions in my direction.

I lean toward agreeing with others that this is a de-Dial and I would personally suggest you NOT lose your 'vintage virginity' on a de-Dial.' I think the Dial looks too 'clean' to be original.

The thing more generally about Eberhard and the primary reason i collect them is their chronographs in the 20s-40s period and the high quality valjioux 65 movements were a benefit in those watches.

I'm not sure about your budget but if you can't afford an Eberhard chronograph I would focus on another brand rather than this watch - good luck ! Scott
