    Dial and handset looks original to me.
    Curious as to what the asking price is.
    Good luck!

    dial is good. Handset may be a correct service replacement. If the price is right, go for it

    Looks like you may finally get your A386! can you grab a movement shot as well?

    I'd move on that if the price is good. It looks like only the hour and minute hands are service. Subdials look like the skinny ones but could be wrong.

    Saw that one on the 'bay this morning. Also has replacement hands, and (from what I recall of the listing) a replacement crown.

    Yes and yes. Saw that one listed on Chronomania, where the seller did suggest it was a service dial.

    Luzer,
    I'm not sure of ebay policy, but if you're unhappy with what's come to light about this example, you might want to contact seller and see if you can squirm out of the deal....
