This is awesome. Nice to get such a clear explanation of what "Pre-Comex" means, but I learned a lot more besides that!

Thank you once again for the warm response. I am pleased that many of you found the website user friendly and informative. I hope many of you continue to find this a valuable resource for learning about the different dial variations of the 5513.

I am going to call the web designer tomorrow. My hope is that we can work with the hosting company to find out what kind of traffic we are receiving. I have had a lot of good feedback and suggestions from many TRF members. In addition, the programmer tweaked the code for the enter button to allow for the website to work with more browsers.

My favorite page is the sequence. A great overview and aesthetically pleasing.

Best infographic (if we have any fans of Tufte):


Lastly, the elements of the page that outlines the face, "detail 1" and "detail 2" make dial review easy to understand.

Thanks Steve. The first paragraph had a lot of information with dates and serial numbers. Every time I read it, I knew it needed something to keep it all straight. Then it occurred to me to add the diagram. I am glad you found it helpful.
