Jeff, it will be interesting to see Darrens answer to my question of the type of white used on his dial. My dial, and as far as I know, is a matt flat white (with maybe a light cream touch), whereas the Siffert dials have a light pearl finish, almost a very faint silver-white. This is quite noticeable when you look at the photos of the great white next to a Siffert.
: 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.
