What is your preference with dial indicies?

1. Applied to dial

2. Sandwich style dial

3. Painted on dial

You're welcome to rank them instead if you prefer.

For me it's a definitive applied number 1, with sandwich a close second, and painted doesn't even make the list.

Basically, whatever the watch comes with. It’s part of the package and, as a standalone element, wouldn’t be a deal breaker for me. If it works for me as part of the overall look of the watch then I might be interested. If it doesn’t work for me, I’m out.

I haven’t any sandwich dials AFAIK, but I have both applied and painted/printed indices.

As per your list.

There's a few watches I've considered but not bought because they really missed applied indices or numerals  

Depth on the dial is really important for me on most watches, it makes them look more impressive imo.

That said, I like a lot of the printed / painted military dials. From the 40s-60s.

Painted or printed just do not work for me unless they're impressive font, thickness, or maybe size. I think it looks cheap and it absolutely can and will affect my purchasing a watch if it's so.
