So I recently bid on and won an odd creature off of Ebay, item # 140733763841.
RARE VINTAGE SWISS "ENICAR STAR JEWELS" WATCH!!...NR!! | eBay
It is a funny beast as my review of Enicar 140-39-05A does not show any California dials that I could find anywhere online. In addition it seems that typically the star jewels line had different hands and even a different case shape. I'm actually surprised that these guys managed to find a case that would fit the otherwise genuine appearing caseback. I've e-mailed the seller for more specifics.
Typically I expected it to look like this :
For $66 bucks it's hard to argue that it was a good deal if it actually runs but still I feel like the ebayer was vague when he mentioned that it was a "refinished dial." Typically doesn't that mean that the dial has been cleaned up or even relumed and repainted as opposed to completely replaced with something totally fake?
I'm confused here as I'm no expert on this line of watches and was drawn in by this particular dial but hopefully any of you experts can help me clear it up.
Many thanks in advance.
