I’m curious about this as well. Your picture appears to show a domed dial. I assume that there is a domed piece of wood underneath that was turned on a lathe and the copper hammered to it. As far as the numbers go, I haven’t a clue, but would love to learn how ir was done.

Hard to tell from such a small low resolution pic but my guess is the numbers were punched with a die set.

Where would you get a hold of a die set like that?

I posted a blog on etching the numerals onto some copper printed circuit board material some time ago that covers the requirements for one method of etching designs.
I have used the same technique with thicker copper sheets (16 gauge works well), you just need to monitor the depth of the etching.

The numbers are filled with black paint and the texturing is done by hand with varying hammer techniques.

A lot of fun to experiment with!
