    I think it's the "Swiss Made" that's really suspect, as Mike says. This is a later style.

    It's a damn good job if it's a redial. I'm leaning towards original but wait for more opinions.

    +1 for original script. However the 'swiss made' script is too far apart from most Deluxe I know.

    I'm no expert, but isn't odd that the "d" in "Certified" seems to be printed on the hour hand?

    I just couldn't get by the Swiss Made and the spacing. I messaged the seller about the dial being possibly redialed and the auction is now closed. Assuming he made a side deal for it. Oh well, I just wasn't comfortable with it. Next time!

    It certainly isn't the only Deluxe around. You'll get one soon enough.

    In PS the top of the A is flat, but the camera has produced a double image either through vibration or tripod head creep on a long exposure, but neither of those can account for the script being so distinct over the minute hand

    If you mean the hour hand, that is the reflection of the hand on the gold dial you're seeing. My question is...shouldn't the Omega on the dial be applied like on any other Constellation of this period?

    Nope - the earliest constellations - the 352s and some of the 354s had the word "omega" printed.

    Not on the 2699 and 2799. Printed ink is correct for this model (a 2799).

    EDIT: I think the 2700 was the first applied gold OMEGA.

    S'alright. It ain't easy to remember all this crap. I've been at it 5 or 6 years and still screw up these early Constellations.
