Hello,

does anyone knows the system behind the Guardala Ser-No.?

I've seen them with 3 digits and 5 digits Ser.-No.!

Thanks a lot!

They're numbered consecutively---lower #'s, earlier, higher #'s, later. That's about it.

Yeah. He started pumping them out when he got the deal with the WWBW in the 90's.

In 20 years, (it was more than 20, but rounding it off), that's 1750 a year, which is a lot, but possible I think; remember, we all say "handmade" in reference to these pieces, but they were CAD/CAM with hand fininshing, and I've seen several examples from the WWBW period that were sloppy.They looked good, but the measurements were whacked, which, at least to me, would indicate a "rush job".
Of course, whose to say how accurate the numbering system is anyway? How would we know?
