    Do you think that this dial has been refinished? Sorry I don't have a better picture.

    Omega Seamaster Calender: has this dial been refinished?

    First opinion on the picture available, yes, based upon the Seamaster font, shouldn't it have a coat hanger S on that age of watch?

    Like this one

    Redial, and a bad one too. That Omega font is an abomination.

    Yeah the Seamaster and Omega fonts are not accurate, but I don't think it looks too bad. I'm guessing it looks better than the dial did before it was redone. At least the minute marks are nicely spaced.

    I have often wondered if this is in the original case since the markers and hands are gold.. any thoughts? I got it at an NAWCC show.

    There is nothing wrong with gold hour markers and hands combined with a steel case. A very common combination actually- among dozens of brands, those known, less known, and hardly known alike.

    That means You will never know :D
    The very red flag would be if the caseback reference is totally not for this movement and dial

    peire06...it looks like we're all in agreement...a redial. Then again: if the price is 'right'...well, it actually looks OK. Michael.
