Guys I was hunting a movement this AM and I run across a dial I had forgotten about. It's plain SS dial with Roman numerals. It's 50mm wide and I don't have a clue as to what might be that BIG. Anybody have any idea of a 50mm watch? It has one dial foot left on it @ 45.5 or 46 minutes. The others are broken off.

Dan,
Does your dial look like the one I posted under Waltham 1883 AT & T Co.? I realize mine is enamel , but it probably looks like yours in style.

I owned a few of those and most were around 60mm or bigger, but it's possible! I wonder if it is a Russian or European dial? They made some very large and cumbersome watches.

Yes it's that plain dial like that. No name or indication of mfg.

I will vote for English as well. I have a couple of over size English Key winds the larger having a dial around 52mm dia.
Runs well but not having much luck finding suitable hands as the hole sizes are very small compared to the length required.
