    Can anyone tell if the "Longines" text on this watch is redone/restored?

    The quality of text, in my opinion, seems of low quality - the strokes not even (look at "N" and "G", and the "O" seems big compared to the "L") and the contrast of the black seems higher than the second marks. I have seen others with similar text - was it made like this in the factory, or is the text "restored"? Would love to know.

    Hi @Ante2, please post pics instead of links. Links often disappear, and the guidance to come in this thread will disappear along with it.
