    The bezel insert at lease looks aftermarket. Not sure about the dial and hands. Probably aftermarket as the Daini ‘lightening bolt’ looks too squished.

    Some of the details would be difficult to see even in the best internet photos. Dial, hands, bezel insert, and even crystal are likely aftermarket replacements for dive watches this old unless it's confirm watch was stored away in a drawer a long long time ago and left there. Much more difficult to evaluate is the service history of the watch unless you're planning on doing a movement overhaul.

    Where you're buying from is important. Where the seller got the watch is equally important.

    Don't get it wet until you replace all the seals (back, crown, crystal) and perform official/guranteed pressurized water resistance testing.
