Well remember not long ago we were in the battle of the truth of the so called Texas Dials (Paul Newman), so they said there were Dials never sold by singer, just prototype dials, and suddenly a batch of Prototype Singer Dials Appeared, well , one of the reason I did not Believe there were real is because I had a Mint longines Diver that had the same fonts as the Original Newman Dials, not like the ones of Texas, but now I just found something and what make me think is the INDEXES they are very similar as the prototype Indexes of the datejust that i have seen recently and for sure this NIVADA IS NOT FAKE. please look at it, i wish some one can buy it to examine the dial.
Please the pictures are bad quality, but if you look at the subdials, the 30 at 3 oclcok, the 45 and 15 andt 9 o'clock, are identical to the Newman Dials from Texas. Also look at the more older longines subdial they are similar to the Original Dials that we all accept

Hello

I have a question unrelated to your post, but regarding e* bay links within the post.
Is there a procedure to post an e*bay link in your message. I tried but my post was deleted. I wanted to get an opinion on a couple of 6263 that were for sale on e*bay, but may be incorrectly described in the listing. Any help would be appreciated.
