And Then There Were 10 [Indy Autavias and Loose Dials]

Someone just sent me a photo of this loose dial, with the question of whether (a) it matches up with any of the dials or watches that we have seen previously, or (b) whether it might be a new arrival, to the rapidly growing census of loose dials.

I believe that this dial is "new to the market" (or at least new to social media), so prospective purchasers of these watches should be very cautious. [If you believe that we have seen this dial previously, then please help us identify it.]

With the addition of this dial, current census would show a total of 10 of the watches or loose dials with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway "Wings and Wheel" logo, as follows:

  • Two complete watches that have history to support their originality
  • Two complete watches that on the face of things appear to / could be be original (but the provenance is currently unknown)
  • Six loose dials (or watches that appear to have been made from loose dials)
