Re Dial? Or are we considering re-dials that conform to original as good enough for positive ID with no caveat? Or would it have to say mod or custom dial, if it is indeed a re-dial?

Has been re-dialed or cleaned. Minute register is missing and figures in the ad are numeric but I've had both and believe the id is valid.

The '37 ad shows numeric markers and 21j.

Hey Darren, Great call, I've edited my 1st comment from Pres to treasurer. Case and dial are both better for the Treasurer and it may have been released in both 17j and 21j.

Hmmm, this is a tricky one. Based on what I see from the outside I'd go with President, but then we look on the inside and it has a 17J movement. So is it a President with the incorrect movement or a Tresurer with an incorrect dial?

Or is it a "non-conforming" as we are never likely to find an exact watch matching this. The redial should have at least had some level of a minute track. Bad re-dial IMO.
