    Decal printed dial

    Hi !

    This weekend I achieve to print a nice 6538 dial on decal paper.
    Dial photoshoped pixel by pixel and printed in high quality.

    Drawing and test print




    Decal print





    Test on dial plate








    Tried to print red line depth without success


    Hole cutted


    Hands on



    Test on my spare silix case






    Thanks for reading

    Wow, now this is interesting. What did you use to punch the hole in the dial?

      I made a cross with cutter from the dial back when the decal was well dry. Then pushed with a tooth pick. Loose some ink on the hole edges but it's not serious and the hands should mask it. If not I can reprint at will.

        So these would simply be overlays on sterile/blank dials I assume?

          Exactly. The decals are transparent, revealing the dial brass.

              SO we are seeing the mounted decal with a brass background showing through in your photos? A freakin' gilt…Brilliant!

                    Hands prepared this morning. Lume removed and hands sanded with 2000 paper.

                    And some decals print test in black, brown and textured brown.

                      Dial lumed this afternoon with a mix of nemoto GLL-300F, acrylic varnish, white acrylic paint, and a little bit of Sennelier Terre de Sienne pigment.
                      Hand sanded and lumed to match.




                      Quick test in my spare case





                      Finally Big Dazza dial and hands replaced by my new set.








                      Unfortunately the decal retracted drying. I'm was too impatient and used an hairdryer. Next time I will let it wet few hours naturally.
