It is one of the Mark V dials. All variations of the Mark V dials have photos depicting them within this thread.

The dial is a Mark V (a).
I believe this is actually 5B, since the O's are circular as opposed to ovoid

Hi i am thinking of getting this 1675 mentioned to be in 6mio series. I have seen some posts of 6 mio serial showing 16750 instead of 1675. Is it true that there is 1675 in 6mio series. If yes, is this dial correct (it is mark 5 dial i believe)? Please help !

GMT 16750s can be found as early as 6.1XXXXX.

Is it legit to have 1675 in 6.4 million series?

Hi,

Wondering what this dial is... (1675 5,1). Supposed to be from 1976.
Is this a service dial?

Thanks.

Hi All- it’s seems generally accepted that some Mkiv dials were provided with serial numbers in the low 3xxxx range in the early 70’s. Are they considered any more collectible or not necessarily?

No they are not. The only dial from the white-lettered era that brings a premium would be the Mark III dials when compared to other dials.

Thanks- I referred to this thread many times- the info is super helpful. Not mentioned is what some refer to as the 0.5 dial- essentially the mk1 with small hands with a 1.6xxxx or so serial. I assume those are rare?

Hi i happen to follow this thread because i love the 1675 and i happen to have this 1.68x. Serial no. The dial is matte long e dial so i think it is mark i. But it has the small arrow which i assume was a replacement arrow hand. Now that you mention there is a mark 0.5 variant, i am curious of there really is such variant.

Would like to know more about this.

I believe the 0.5 dial is referred to somewhere in this thread. It might be referred to the Mark 1.5!!! As all things collectable, different names could be attached to the same watch, dial or other items.

Also, the small 24-hour hand as found on the gilt watches could definitely be found on the early white-lettered Mark I or Mark 0.5 dials. In the past, I've owned a couple myself.

If you can't find the Mark 0.5 /Mark 1.5 in this thread, it can be found here.

There is a reference to this combination on the gmtmaster1675 site under the mk1 section. I’ve seen it in other places referred to as a 0.5.

Yes there is an early white-lettered dial, a very early dial at that, referred to as the Mark 0.5 or Mark1.5 variant. Additionally, the small 24-hour hand would be considered correct for these earl white-lettered dials from around 1966-to 1967.

How about on the gmtforum.com. Maybe you should check there at this 2017 thread :

Look at the service dials in this thread and concentrate on the coronet (crown). All the service dials have this same coronet.

Also, the later ones which are luminova, not tritium, are marked SWISS at the bottom.

Anything is possible, but I don't think so. 1969 would be about a 2.1-2.4m and I think the early MK2s start in 1970 or 1971. But MKIIs show up later, randomly, as well and there's no perfect science on this so that's why I say anything is possible. So my answer is "yes", but "no".

A Mark II in a 2.1 to 2.1 million is not possible based on my experience. Way too early.
