Mark 3

Serial Number Range: 41xxxxx – 54xxxxx

General Notes: Commonly referred to as the “Radial Dial,” the Mark 3 is defined not by the fonts but by the lume plot placement. Relative to all the other versions of the matte dial 1675, the lume plots on this dial are more central, giving it a unique appearance. The good people over at VWC Limited have produced a nice essay with an in-depth description of the Mark 3 dial and what to look for – it’s a deeper dive for those who are interested. Of all the matte variations this is the most easily recognizable and, for some, the most desirable.

Distinguishing Characteristics:

  • The lume plot placement, as described above.
  • The ‘GMT Master’ font is much different than the rest of the dial and looks very similar to the printing seen on the 6542.
  • The SCOC font is tall and narrow relative to the other variations.
  • The lume is lightly waffled and the font printing is very prominent – from a side angle the white printing appears very three dimensional and domed.
