        - negative gilt dial
        - 3D red depth
        IMHO that dial is a complete custom ... padprinted or decal

        maybe tripdog could confirm ... or not
        1 - A/6538 Burford Milsub
        2 - sorry ... that build is classified
        3 - 16800 Comex Rolex - dated 1984
        4 - Heavily modded 16610 cheapie

            Yes, it was a Custom dial I asked to be made, but the factory always makes a few when I commission a dial, so there were a few others made too.

            Pad printing I think, can't see it being silkscreen.

              Thanks tripdog really interesting ... could you please tell us some more about it ?

              About the printing ...
              Is the gilt part real negative gilt (black on gilt) or gilt printed on a black dial ?
              From the pics you posted I would say real negative but could you please confirm ?

              About the case ...
              Did JMB or you reengraved the case and caseback ?
              If YES could you please post some pics ?
              I'm working on an early Red Depth 6610 (SN 113XXX) with open 6 on the "165 ft" and it seems those earlies had specific engravements (BREVET +, specific font, etc ...)

                It's a true gilt dial - negative relief.

                The case was engraved with the standard 1610 Explorer references, that's how it was sent to me, but obviously jmb could do the correct engravings if you asked him to..

                I don't have the watch any longer, it was built for someone.

                  Is there a chance you could do custom dials for other watches Tripdog ?

                  BTW great watch...

                    I'm not making the dials, I order them.
