    Hi all

    Need some of your expert opinions on this one. Like to get a 2852, but getting strange feelings on this one. Could it be a re-dial? The colour look a bit too white and the painted second indexes don't look so sharp . Also not 100% on the Automatic and Constellation typography.

    Cheers! Screenshot_20190312-224422_Tradera.jpg Screenshot_20190312-224410_Tradera.jpg Screenshot_20190312-224402_Tradera.jpg Screenshot_20190312-224400_Tradera.jpg Screenshot_20190312-224353_Tradera.jpg

    Sometimes strange feelings are the best feelings... :whistling:

    You are well advised to look elsewhere...

    Sorry for my ignorance.. the term re-dial; does it mean replaced dial or repainted/re-worked dial or something else. New here, so trying to follow the conversation and hopefully learn some cool stuff.

    It is a reprinted dial. The metal indices and logo are pressed out, dial is reprinted and the indices riveted back to the dial.

    Hi @Peppe
    If you know enough to be looking for a specific Constellation reference you must have looked at a few Connies along the way.
    Constellations were never produced with only Automatic on the dial - so you don’t need to look any further to know the dial has been messed with.
    -and it is pretty poor redial.

    If you look here you'll probably see it's already been posted by @X350 XJR, our own "Imperial Re-dial Sniffer".

    Search these forums for some proper old Constellations before pulling the trigger on a deal. It will save you a lot of headaches down the road.

    Hi all

    Thanks for confirming what I thought. I was quite sure but learnt that you never know with old watches.

    Amazing that you actually remember seeing the exact same watch!!!!

    Yea... I am a perfectionist so will probably buy from this forum anyway.

    Thanks all and take care!

    But you must admit that the “M” test is much simpler than the “MOY” test.

    Yup, pretty flat out refinished Dial.
