I don't know the font(s), but I can't imagine a 1:1 equivilace with a font that's already out there. Almost every repo dial or bezel has some give away in one of the letters or numbers, that once seen, can't be unseen. A more overlooked issue is kerning, along with spacing. The vintage pieces were produced in the pre-digital age, before digitally kernels fonts. Repo dials with kerned letters really jump out at me.

I understand you fully do not like that as well, butttttt i have seen some submariner ceramic numbers where i think its the 50 the 5 and 0 is spread farrrrrrrrrr apart that it just jumps out and looks like crap. just my 2 cents tho. im just trying to do some wall art stuff and was just hoping for a font i can quicktrace but then i will spend some hours refining it and thgats what i wanted to stay away from.
