This looks like my new (old) Datejust, where there seems to be a lower case "g" or "a" before and after the "T Swiss T" at 6 O'clock.

I can't seem to find a good explanation of the extra letter or symbol online - do you know what it means, Jake?

Good question Kyle.

I don't know, but hopefully somebody will chime in and share the answer.

Happy Holidays!!!

Hi, Jake.

FYI - I asked the crowd over at the WatchUSeek forums and was told that what I thought was a "g" is actually a Greek sigma, which apparently indicates that a precious metal was used to make parts of the dial - e.g. the markers or the hands. When I started searching for sigma instead of the letter g, I found pictures of other dials with sigmas that were much clearer than the ones on the Datejust. Mystery solved, I guess.
