Footnotes

  • Maxi Dials, named for their large tritium hour plots, were produced on Submariners from 1976 until around 1984. There were five versions made until the introduction of the black gloss dial with white metal surrounds. This example, the Maxi III, is a particular favourite of collectors because the hour plots appear to be touching the five minute markers which gave it the extra moniker "lollipop."
