Another small time shady dealer shilling redial Omegas from India. For some reason those are predominant in the UK.
He also lists his shit as "Perfect investment as this is Guaranteed to increase in value over the years." which I understand is an illegal term to use unless you have a serious million dollar cashflow as security in case those guarantees fail to materialize. Which, obviously, will happen.
Avoid like the plague, every single piece is royally fucked.
Luckily the website is so remarkably terrible no one will ever manage to place an order anyway.
This is my favorite. " The original finish dial has developed a stunning spider web patina over its almost 60 years, a very rare dial." Or as collectors would put it, it is completely shot. All original condition of course including relumed hands a hilariously poor redial. Check the "c" in "Automatic", that one really puts the "c" in "cunt".
I'm not even going to even discuss that crown. And as an easter egg he changed the text at the bottom to "Swiss Mad" which is the only legit statement on the entire page.
Thankfully this guy provides some good redial spotting material, so let's just right into it.
So, the first thing you actually want to avoid when completely reprinting a dial is exposing the hashmarks underneath the applied markers in some spots, and completely hide them in others. See markings in red.
Now we take a closer look at consistency. Let's assume we believe that the dial is legit. Down to the crisp white base coat exposed at the corners by some dude incapable of inserting a movement into a case and scratching shit up. So how can that base coat especially be so minty crispy white when the back of the dial if totally fucked up and heavily water damaged and even after US cleaning, there are still rust spots on the movement itself?
You may have guessed it already, it can't.
