My NNC3GWT has arrived!

Post by trsullivan »

The postman brought me a very damp package in a pouring rain today. It contained this beautyImage
and I am very pleased, I must say. :D It is perfect as far as I can see, no marks or blemishes at all. The only thing is that there is no serial number.Image
The booklet reads "00 DAS" where the number should be. Can anyone elucidate?

Another no serial number piece out of captivity! There are several threads that mention such pieces (a C1 recently) My C7 Rapide champagne dial is similarly devoid and came from the NN sale too, likewise the booklet shows serial # 0. In some ways it makes them special as the booklet is the provenance :thumbup:

I agree with you both, and this one won't be going back unless something really drastic occurs. I will ask Wera what DAS stands for, out of curiosity.

Perhaps DAS stands for:

:lol: :lol:

Any other guesses?!

OO DAS

You're reading it the wrong way.

SAD O O is Chinese for quartz.

Hope that helps.

Actually, I would kind a like not having a serial number. It's unique. Actually, I saying it wouldn't mater to me one way or the other. Think of it as the fine master finished prototype before production stated.
