I've always known, the numerals were applied since years already.Is this:1) My mistake (numerals were always embossed)2) A site's mistake3) New process so the numerals went from being embossed to applied and now embossed againCould someone please clarify?Thanks!

Leosweeneypod Wrote:Hi Guys,Paul is correct. Models upto 2005/2006 had embossed numerals on the dial as a nod to this feature in the design of the original Portuguese watches. Later models all have applied numerals.Personally, I find the modern dials are sharper looking and ooze quality. At the end of the day,'Embossed' is just a fancy way of describing a stamped-out dial with minimal operations in its manufacture.Leo
