    Hello to all OF members.
    Considering that Constellation ref.2852 listing on Bay from France.
    I don't see anything wrong, except it is polished (not much)
    and like seller says, hands has been relume.
    My question is the dial repainted?

    Thank you in advance any help will be appreciated s-l1600.jpg s-l1600 (3).jpg s-l1600 (2).jpg s-l1600 (1).jpg

    Polished it is but in quite fine condition. In all a genuine watch and the redial of the hands looks just fine and harmonize with the lume on the index. What´s the asking price?

    And whoever relumed those hands absolutely nailed it. I love this watch.

    Compared it to my own which is considered original and I cannot see a difference. But I am far from an expert on this forum. There are also others that are able to comment whether these hands are an original match.

    Dial looks original, well at least concerning MOY. Would never guess that hands are relumed. Amateur me.. :p

    The only thing that might hold back the end price is the movement - i can see at least 4 or 5 diff colours in there so it could be a collection of parts made from Several diff Omega watches

    This is just a guess, on my part, certainly I’m no watchmaker

    I havent seen the ebay listing, so not sure if There any mention of the caliber or watch accuracy, but i would ask seller Some difficult questions before the auction ends:

    has the movement been serviced recently ( if so, ask for proof, and what, precisely, was done)?
    Were any parts replaced? If so, which ones?
    Whats the current accuracy Of the movement ?
    etc

    I actually doubt that these hands are relumed, it seems to be the original lume. (Never say never.)

    It’s my watch actually :p I love it as well but I bought recently a new one and a few of my collection have to go...

    ... and to address this thread’s question... I’m pretty sure dial is not repainted ;)

    The movement has just been serviced (got the receipt to whoever wants it). According to my watchmaker it has just been disassembled, cleaned and lubricated. No parts of the movement were replaced whilst owner of the watch. No idea of the accuracy of the watch... that’s indeed the only difficult question for me...
