    Hi guys!
    Its been a while since I posted anything here, but Im still collecting and trying to diversify my collection.
    When doing so I tend to get a bit too excited and buy watches that has some issues.
    This Tissot is what I think to be a mistake.
    I bought it on an online auction with terrible pictures. When I got it it look to have a refurbished dial.
    What do you think?

    I am a complete newbie, but when I zoom it looks like the lines have uneven thickness. To my uneducated eye I say redial.

    Absolutely a redial. Poor quality.

    Crown is incorrect replacement.

    Return it if you can.

    Because I’m a nitpick, I’m offended this is referred to as Art Deco

    Looks more like a very dirty dial was heavily cleaned, losing some definition, and the lines then retouched.
