    Dear all,

    After buying a few month back my transition speedmaster.
    I came across a Dial that could help me restore my watch with the most important part: the dial.

    My watch:http://omegaforums.net/threads/transitional-pre-moon-landed-at-home.3701/

    And here is the dial: it's a stepped dial that was missing from mine, the seller told me it's for a 861 caliber...

    My only concern, is that it looks suspectly good, but there is the circle paterns in the sub dials.
    So, Do you think it's legid, or been relumed?

    thank's for your advice guys!

    Looks legit and not relumed. These early 861 dials are a bit easier to find in nice shape than the 321 dials.

    I find it tricky and quite expensive at 530 euros!
    I'm still wandering if its not better to enjoy it as it is and buy something else...
    thank's for your point of view, I'm kind of relieved about the reluming.
    Thank's

    I find it very expensive indeed.

    Your watch is 2960xxxx and many in that range had dials that turned brown. The dial you show may be slightly brown? I cannot really tell from the photos, but the only justification for that price is if it is brown.

    I totally agree expensive, but if I want to get it back to glory, I need a step dial.
    If someone has one in stock, I'm interested!

    Just to update the post,
    I found my dial thank's to the forum, a nice looking one, and 1 week later get another one not in good shape but for 10 dollars it was worth the price!
