Watch Dial: California Ghost

$42.00

Description

Featuring a distinctive composition of half Roman and half Arabic numerals, along with dashes at 3, 6, and 9 o'clock, the California dial has definitely earned its status as an iconic design.

But what's the California connection you may ask? It's a wild one. According to Fratello Watches, during the 1970s vintage watch boom, a Los Angeles-based dial refinisher, Kirk Rich, started refinishing Tudor dials with this distinct design. The biggest problem? Tudor watches that were rebranded “Rolex Tudor” to supposedly increase their prestige. The term “California Dial” then became known among scammers to denote a “redone” dial. In other words, it was a term that applied to fake dials. Read all about it here

This California Ghost dial is filled with C3 Super-LumiNova® Lume. C3 Super-LumiNova Lume is the brightest of all lume colours, topping the Super-LumiNova table at 100% relative brightness and giving off a bright, green glow that typically lasts for 7 to 10 hours. It will match the stock Seiko LumiBrite hands and any of our watch hands options perfectly.

Very good dial. I bought the bgw9 lumen that pairs nicely with the Mercedes hands with the same lumen.
