Was the blue color common (and other is rare) or it was just a guess from you?Dear Archy,The dial with blue writing is the rule, The shield with the writing "warranted 800 silver" is the rule too for early Pallwebers, including some Pallwebers II. The writing (in my watch in English) and the hallmarks are very similar (the writings) or identical (the shield) in my Pallweber.It would be interesting to know if the dial with the writing in purple has a movement with a number less than 600. If the movement had a higher number does not surprise me. Do you know the number of this movement?

(I wanted to initiate to get a picture of the wheel with the missing teeth.For the Pallweber I you don’t see this object from the wheel side, because it sits under the number discs on the dial side. It is a star for Pallweber I which has to be removed to get the wheel out of the movement.For Pallweber III it is a disk with 5 fingers. (picture left side)For the Pallweber IV (nobody calls it like that, it is the version with the bridge completely covering the number discs except the 2 holes for the time reading) in the picture on the right side, it became a kind of a star again, but it sits (and is visible) from the wheel side.You also see the missing teeth, it is OK like that. I will add a better image when I can make one, it was just done in a hurry...RegardsRalph
