    I vote for a quality redial. These dials had a natural lacquer that yellows with age and sometimes cracked.

    Case is in nice condition, there are some marks on the lugs probably from an old Twist-O-Flex bracelet. The crown is correct. Band is vintage Omega replacement, as is buckle.

    Please don't ask me for market values. I am a poor judge of those. This one will get expensive.

    repainted dial, too fat, little crater under the minute hand in foto 2, and this color of dial makes me vote for redial.

    It's certainly a refinished dial - just a very good one. Even if those XVI's are stored away for years in a drawer the laquer at least yellows and most times crazes just a bit.

    Not so bad if you want to wear it every day, though.

    If you meant $555, then grab it first and ask questions later.

    I think he meant the original price from Omega in 1956 was $555.

    Don't think that's right. According to Desmond's article:

    The $500 figure would have been for a top of the line Constellation, probably without the gold bracelet. Can't see the XVI selling new anywhere for more than the best Constellation.
