Hi all,

Do you see any red flags on this one? Specially the lume? Seems re-lumed somehow.

Thanks in advance.

I’m a bit nervous to comment when there isn’t anything alarmingly wrong, but still doesn’t quite feel right. I was thinking perhaps a service dial, but lume does look “puffy” and pulled in from the white number edges, so probably fine. I’d just point out that the lume in the hands and the dial are very differen colours, so probably didn’t start out life together - perhaps a hint that the dial came in later? No biggie though.

Thank you Dave,
Yes i understand this one looks a bit tricky to see how & what. I will soon be in Dubai for some business and i thought would be cool to buy this one if all correct.
I do not know if always the patina of the hands match the dial lume. Tricky one

Got some better pics of the lume. To me looks fine but would be nice to hear others opinions

Looking at the detailed shot of the crown and pushers on the web site, I'd be more worried about how nicked up the lugs are and it looks like one of the pushers has been replaced. Not to mention the odd looking gold on the crown. At the sellers price point I wouldn't want to see any of that.

Thanks fred for confirming
@vintage : yes the case is not the best out there. But personally i love it when the dial is good and the case shows the age of the watch and still original and not polished. The price is indeed steep, but i’ll see how it ends ;)
Pusher is difficult to say if changed, need to be there and have a better look.
My main worry was the dial lume, which is now gone :)

Pusher definitely changed. The shape of the caps are different, the lower, short squatty one is original (or at least looks to be)
