    Hello, I just receive this watch today.

    It was omega 18k model 2659 with cal. 342, pink gold version.

    In my opinion it was original honeycomb dial with original minute marker , hand and crown, also the glass?

    I want to ask this forums
    1. Is it the uncommon dial? (I found only few of this dial from internet, however, not pink gold version)
    2. How often do you see this minute marker in “T-shape” like this one?
    3. How do you call the name of this lugs?
    4. If anyone had this model please show and share, thanks
    What’s your opinion?
    So sorry for lot of pics that added.
    Please feel free to add any comment that you would like.

    Best regards,
    Teera

    I have never seen that and based on the alignment of several of the markers, I would say it's a redial. Could be wrong, so lets wait for other opinions.

    Did the seller claim that this dial was original, or did the listing say the dial was restored, or some language like that?

    Redial, hope you can send it back and secondly if you can’t hope you didn’t pay too much for it.

    At least the one who did the redial also was the same, most likely.

    Does "T" maybe stand for "Teerapat"?

    My sense is the dial's authentic.

    I'm almost 100% in agreement there (not having seen the actual item first hand).
    These dials are very hard to imprint markings with precise regularity, add to that the fact that dial makers in that era didn't have access to the current technology and small imperfections were usually accepted.

    If I'm wrong and it is a redial, it's a very good one.

    Good. Hang around for a year or two, listen to wiser more experienced posters, absorb information.
    Do your own research based on that guidance and maybe one day, you will be the one to give advice.

    That's what I did, and I'm still learning.
