    I've been looking to buy this watch but can't agree with myself if this dial of this 166.010 is original (first 3 pics). Especially the "automatic" text seems to be stretched out a bit. I've found the same model with exactly this dial (pic 4) but also some without the stretched out text (pic 5). I'm also not sure if these models should have the stripes on both sides of the swiss made at the bottom

    I think the stripes near the swiss made are fine. Case a bit polished. I'm not an expert on dials, but it looks okay to me. Hands are a bit bright silver; I haven't seen that before.

    Thanks! I do think that the bright hands in the first photo are caused by the bad lighting but in the other pictures it actually looks fine

    The "Automatic" text seemed to be a little too stretched out and the c of automatic kinda looks like it's been painted on. I say this because it does look as if the lower end of the c is a bit fatter than the rest

    Dial looks OK to me also!

    The hands look quite corroded. I bought a similar watch with corroded hands which seem to have had a water damage inside.

    Do you have movement pictures also?

    Case is a bit too shiny I would think
