Recently got hooked on vintage watches, so I am eager to learn how to detect redials.
This is an example from ebay of a bad dial restoration and in my opinion is a good learning material.
Obviously the seller is honest and posted pictures of the dial before the restoration.
Before redial (I am not 100% positive that this is untouched):
Dial after restoration:
A number of problems are immediately visible:
- TELEMETRE label misaligned
- OMEGA name & logo look almost comical
- 11 and 1 not on the same level
- 15, 30 and 45 minute markers missing!!!
