Painted Hebdomas Dial? "Click" to Login or Register 
Hi Folks,

I recently bought a Hebdomas PW dial from a local dealer on eBay. The dial was variously described as a "Hebdomas Dial", "original & mint" & "New/Old Stock".

When it arrived it turned out to be a 2 layer paint job (no transparent topcoat) rather than the 3 layer enamel type normally found.

When I took this up with the seller he informed me that later Hebdomas watches did indeed have painted dials and that he recently sold an unused Hebdomas wristwatch, BNIB, with a painted dial.

Has anyone out there come across original painted dials on Hebdomas watches?

Hi Dick,
Frankly, I would prefer a painted dial if it was original (as opposed to 'Aunt Violet' who likes to paint tea cups and saucers).

Check out the following site!

Hi Mike,

Aunt Violet says she's very hurt but is sending you a sample of her latest saucers just to show there's no hard feelings!
