1803 dials for caliber 1555 & 1556. Fitment issue

Dear all,

I have an 1803 watch from approx 1974 (non-quickset), and want to change the pie pan dial.

My watchmaker says he can't fit the dial due to "pan pie sides" (see picture) might be a bit to high.

When comparing this dial to others 1803 pie pan dials, most of them (but not all) have a sunken center (see picture). My dial does not.

Have any of you heard of differences between caliber 1555 & 1556 dials or have had similar fitment issues?

Thanks in advance.

Can you clarify.. "...might be a bit too high ? ! He thinks or tried it?

I do not see any issues with either dial you posted for an 1803.

Maybe you need another watchmaker.
