Re: Agree with Our Experts / Major Concern is Relume on Dial

Thank you all. This is really super helpful


: I agree with what our experts have written.

: One point to add -- Many collectors are OK with reluming the hands,
: and even think of it as natural over the life of a watch. But
: many vintage watch collectors would hesitate with any relume of
: the dial. On this watch, the dial seems to have been relumed;
: for many collectors, this would be the end of the discussion.

: Still -- my suggestion is to see how it looks to you. If you can
: live with the relumed hands and dial, and the polished case,
: then maybe this one will be priced right. But if it hurts your
: eyes, then even a "bargain" will not be a smart buy.
