    Hi everyone, currently on the fence of purchasing the attached 2852 connie with a calibre 505 at about 2k+ USD. Can I get some advice on the following:

    1. The lume plots, is it normal for the plots to be on the indices?
    2. "Swiss Made" missing on the bottom of the dial, is this common?
    3. Is the "shark's tooth" indices Connie much rarer than the "arrowhead" indices connie?

    Any other glaring errors on the watch that I should pay attention to?

    Thanks in advance everyone,
    Newbie Connie collector

    Do you have a picture in better resolution?

    I wonder what happened to the case at 12, looks almost like it’s burned and/or heavily dented in?

    Also, it’s hard to judge the font with the low resolution, but does it look like the t is at an angle and the o not even round? 1A0EA28E-61DB-4FA4-B993-8AE57A022FC5.jpeg

    1. Comparing the lume colour of the hands and dial, the hand lume appears much darker, that coupled with the bulbous look of the dial lume and lighter colour makes me think the dial has possibly been re-lumed. More and better pictures would help.

    2. Hard to tell from that picture but I think it could be there.

    3. No.

    1. The lume plots are in the right places, but seems a bit large - could be relumed.
    2. It is probably there.
    3. Not really.

    Any other points? How about the heavy dial spotting?

    I would really avoid that dial unless you like ‘patina’, or damage as I call it.
