    Is this 60s longines a redial?

    Dear forum members and longines specialists
    could you please tell me if -to your opinion- this Longines dial is legit or if it is a redial:

    Movement 19.4 (dated from 1967 from its number), case and crown seems legit (and rather reasonable price too).

    but I could'nt find this dial design elsewhere and in some 1960s catalog, the closest one with such a marker at 12 oclock is the 21029 from the 1967 catalog but with lines crossing the dial.

    Also the swisss instead of swiss made on the dial is making me doubting...

    Any opinion?

    Many thanks in advance for your feedback.
    Best regards

    I found a few more examples for you, and they all resemble the watch from the catalog. But what actually troubles me more is that the painted hour marker lines don't look fine enough and some of the lettering looks sloppy (e.g. the "E").

    2:00 doesn't look 100% clean with my magnification button, so I'm going with redial.

    However. If price (to you) is reasonable and refinished dial doesn't matter. Buy it

    Most likely refinish if previous dial was in poor condition

    Thanks a lot for your feedback and pictures. I also thought the lines were too thick...
    Anyway, this always surprise that people go for a refinish a not highly rated watch, knowing the price it costs to refinish a dial!
