Re: So Would It Be Fair to Conclude . . .

Jeff, I can tell you that my Great White originally is a white siffert with black-orange registers changed with the age in chocolate.

Some important italian Rolex collector, not expert in Heuer, asked me if it's a 1972 watch (as it is): all Singer Rolex dials fo end 1971/begins 1972 changed colour from black to brown.

This is the story of this dial in that beautifull colour: he changed like a Daytona dial!

this is a 1972 Daytona with brown compax, singer dial!

: So would it be fair to conclude that the 1163 "White
: Boy" / "Great White" was simply the predecessor
: of this 11630 (in a 1163 case), with paint on the registers that
: has faded / aged to chocolate? Of course, the 1163 had the
: Viceroy style hands (brushed steel, with colored triangular
: tips), rather than the full-on orange hands.

: Thanks,

: Jeff
