Help with 1675 nipple dial

I just picked up this mint service nipple dial with "Swiss" at the bottom. I know that 16753 and 16758 service dials are now the large plot dials of the 16713. My question is: does Rolex still make nipple service dials for he 1675 gold models? And, are they marked "swiss" or "swiss made"? I'm a little confused about this one. I am sure that I read somewhere that the "Swiss" dials were only made for one or two years.

Can you take a picture of the back? Depending on feet placement, we'll see if it's for a 1675 to a 1675x.

It's definitely for a 1675 based on feet position. (I'll snap some pics in the morning) Also, the applied gold crown. It was purchased from a very reputable dealer. I'm just looking for some info.

Jocke and Tools seemed to have suggested a 98/99 service dial used "Swiss" instead of the "T SWISS T" of the later luminova service nipple dials.

But that's a 6year old thread. Hopefully Tools and Springer can shed some light.

How do the feet position differ between the 1675/3 vs 16753?

I have a 1979 16753 with applied crown and always wondered if the nipple dial was correct. Apparently this was a transitional year...

This is the back with the feet positioned for the 1575 movement that is in a 1675. The 16753 uses a 3075 movement which had the feet in very different positions (one foot is right next to the date window)

I have read that some of the very first 16753's actually did have the applied gold crown before they changed to the printed crown.

I read the early 1675 also had Cal 1565. Are the feet position the same as the cal 1575?
