    I'm certainly no Longines PW expert, but I'm wondering if there is a reason to believe that anything other than the movement is original Longines.

    Is it from the Ukraine?

    Why? Obviously a redial but don't see why it could not have been original

    It could have been, but I was looking for actual evidence. Were there any case markings? Any research showing other dials of this type?

    Plenty similarly styled dials in platinum tank watches in the late 20s and 1930s —one is even featured in the first edition of the Goldberger book, and there are currently a few on Ebay/
    so this dial doesn’t strike me as out of place even though it’s a completely different watch.
