    Vintage Rolex - bad redial, right?

    Vintage Rolex - it's a bad redial, right? The lume was done really nicely, I wish the text was as crisp.

    I hope things are not equally dreadful when you turn the thing around. Perhaps it is even worse and it is a total fake. Do you know what movement it is, Timex M24? My watchmaker keeps a bucket of those to throw after customers who did not close the door when leaving the shop.

    Maybe it has an Indian Oris movement?

    Thankfully I bought it as a running parts movement assuming the dial was junk. Good balance, etc.
