I‘ve just asked him. His answer:

It’s a dial from a Rolex 618 caliber.
I made a marriage project with the movement.
The dial remained without any further need.
The dial can be bought without eBay, to save VAT.

I’m not a Rolex expert, but I’ve studied a lot of gen dials for gilt research.

I’m surprised by the numbers:
Rolex dials were mostly press-stamped like image below. (6352-1953)
6352 1953.jpg
Here, no trace on the back,
no hole/riveted trace,
and no dial factory logo and number (Rolex’s customer number for the dial maker) …

Maybe it’s a matter of period,
which year should it be?

A Nomolas pocket watch with a Cortebert 616 & incabloc shock protection

https://www.ebay.com/itm/166446677918?h ... R-yot_f8Yg

I’ve bought two of these from this seller, and although neither one was mint, they’ve both functioned upon arrival and kept very good performance after I gave them a full service. Others here have had mixed experiences buying from him. His asking price is high, but these don’t come up often.

Nice color and cheap price. :thumbup:

I’m always skeptical about these PVD treatments on movements:
Movements plates are usually electroplated, before jewels assembly, but here
see that the jewels and incabloc spring are blacken as well.
This means that they have blacken the whole plate “as is” ☹
I wouldn’t like to service this one…

What do you think about this mouvement? Could you advice if it could be use as a 6xx cortebert?

99€ for the pocket watch
