I have always wondered what defined a " Stella " dial.

I thought it had to be "pie pan" but from the response from Steve it seems
that the 18038 can also have stella dials?

Thanks guys for helping to clear this up.

are more available and have different styles of minute track and in different gilts.

Starting to become collectable as the plastics are so hard to find though. The smart money has already started the hoovering of such pieces .

You have some nice stuff that I am very jealous of

On Pie pans there are two types of colouring.

The thick coat which is referred to as enamel has an indent around the markers (especially visible on diamond markers) - These very often have cracked dials and are a rare find in good condition. Where's the regular coloured dials are thinner and less prone to damage. The latter are much easier faked and so you'll need to know what you are looking at rather than taking a coloured dial on blind faith. looking for the correct deviations and spoils are the best way to verify a coloured dial

There is a way to verify for sure on a dial that is loose which I am afraid I shall need keep to myself for now: with the new found fake techniques there are certain points that need to be kept inside and away from the scallywags.

Sapphires however are a better quality item and I have not seen any abused examples YET.

I Will buy the beers. Need to rummage through your DD collection.
Much as I love your awesome stellas, my favourite is the sweetie with baguette diamond markers! Only one I have seen. Too much distraction, great people and great watches, in HK. Thanks, Philipp!

Best...MC
