Hey Guys,
I'm wondering if one of you can give me the breakdown on how many dial variations there were on the 1655 Explorer II. I thought there were three versions, but I have seen a dial described as a MK 5 dial, so I'm curious. Looked a lot like a Mk3 in terms of crown shape on the dial, T SWISSThanks,
Dave

Hey sorry, somehow my post got clipped.?? Continued on to say the MK 5 has TSWISS(lessthan)25T, with fonts appearing the same as a MK3 as well.

Anyway, wondering if perhaps a MK 5 dial could be a later version produced solely as a service dial? Or maybe just mislabeled? Or were there more than 3 dial variations during the production run of the 1655 that had more subtle differences?

Thanks for the help,
Dave
