cellar Wrote:Maybe it is not cross hatching, and that we are looking at the dial the wrong way (we are looking but not seeing).Could the second image represent a magnet with North at the top and the lines representing the magnetic fields?Looking at some Gerald Genta's other early designs:The Patek Philippe Nautilus with it's scuba mask shaped dial and the case sides for the mask strap.The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver with its distinctive bezel as the surround of a ships port hole.What of the five IWC Ingenieur holes?I think they represent a pentacle/pentagram with the bezel being the circle. From Wikipedia; The circle around a pentagram (transforming it in to a pentacle) is a symbol of "unity, wholeness, infinity, the goddess, and protection. To earth-centered religions throughout history as well as to many contemporary pagans, it represents the feminine spirit or force, the cosmos or a spiritualism Mother Earth, and a sacred space."Also, from the pagan; The Lesser Ritual of the Pentagram can be used by the Neophyte as a protection against impure magnetism, and as a practical form of exorcism, to eliminate obsessing or disturbing thoughts.Could it represent the protection that the inner iron case provides?Cheers from the cellar
oneredtrim Wrote: Was the ref 1832 the first model to have the applied IWC lifted up into the 12'oclock area of the dial, i know the Polo's and the Golf had this design and Gerald from his own mouth liked to pencil every detail (think i recall him mentioning designing dial batons).Anybody got any official paperwork depicting Hebe's dial?
