Easy Tells

MOY (Check Placement of Letters M, O and Y)

There are some contradictions so MOY should be applied with other tests.

MOY works for almost all Constellation dials until the change of script in the later 1960's.

  • A line can be drawn from 1200 to 0600 and it will pass through the centre of the first chevron (upside-down V) of the M in AUTOMATIC
  • and through the centre of the O in CHRONOMETRE.
    • Some variations occur where the line is slightly to the right of the centre of the O. 
  • The line carries on to the right of the Y in OFFICIALLY, barely missing the upper serif.
