    Is this dial repainted?

    I am looking to buy this watch. An Omega Seamaster 14700 2 SC. The dealer says, that everything is original. But I have looked more closely at the dial. Especially the ‘second marks/lines’ touching the W and the D in ‘SWISS MADE’ in the bottom worries me... Do I need to be worried? Is it an original, or is it a repainted dial?
    Thanks in advance👍

    I don't see obvious signs of a redial, but I would prefer to see a higher magnification straight-on image.

    Hi! I own a 14701 61 SC in the same caliber and several other Seamasters and Connies. IMO, this appears to be a re-dial. Your observation about the second markers is valid. On all the references for this model that I can find online, the second markers are very short. On yours the Swiss Made appears to be in the original location, but it looks like the second markers have been elongated, crowding the "Swiss Made". There are also some indications in the font for Seamaster that it has been redone (see the first "e" and its size and spacing relative to the "a", slight misalignment of the "m", etc.

    Thank you for your view👍
    I’m a little surpriced that a ‘trusted seller’ with good reputation and lots of sales tells me, that everything is original, when in fact it isn’t😕

    Sellers who decorate themselves with the lable "trusted" are precisely the last I'd trust.

    Better learn to read between lines and look at pics carefully. No guarantee never to hit a lemon, but better than every dubious ebay lable.

    This "trusted seller" label sounds like Chrono24 to me. If so, it simply means that the seller is trusted by Chrono24 because he pays his fees.

    It may be “original”, but re-painted.
