No SWISS is Very Rare
In Response To: SWISS / No SWISS ()

Yes, the "Siffert" Autavias (Reference 1163 T) with no "SWISS" on the dial are rare. Presumably, an error in the printing that affected a small run of the dials.

I'm not sure that these attract a premium . . . an anomaly, but perhaps it's one that collectors are not willing to pay for.



: There are a few 'no SWISS' examples out there-but far more with
: SWISS printed. Of 3 'no SWISS' recently discussed, one is 141xxx
: and one is 142xxx.

: Hope that helps!
