    Is this Olma a redial?



    Not sure if the Olma symbol is quite right. Thoughts?

    Cool thanks. I wasn't sure if the spacing was quite right between the V and O. The space looked bigger then other Olma logos I had seen.

    And even worse: A redial of this outstanding quality would cost you as much as 10 mint Olmas.

    OP, did not mention "fake", only if dial had been re-worked ("redial?"), and that could be done by an owner of an Olma too. A re-worked dial does not make a watch a fake.

    In this case, I think dial is original.

    I have seen Olma watches sell for silly money so you never know but it's the oldeer models that fetch these higher prices.

    You're right. I correct my statement as follows:

    "Nobody in his right state of mind will ever fake or redial an Olma."

    well they are probably 'OlmaDeer' models.

    @Tomcat
    Never say "will never", in Horology everything/anything can happen.

    That said in OPs case watch appears original dial and not faked!

    Is this Olma a redial?

    I wrote "nobody in his right state of mind will ever ...". Why should he when it's as expensive to 'redial' an Olma (market value < 50 €) as an Omega (market value > 50 €). Note: 'right state of mind'
