    Saw this and appears a terrible smashing of parts but interesting if that dial is genuine. What do you say? Doesnt look like the other racing dials I've seen...

    For example compared to this it looks totally different

    The red looks like it's been applied very clumsily, i vote redial.

    Agree with Bumper, this really looks like a redial. Not just the red isn't overly sharp, the edges of the hour markers' lume are looking a bit frayed as well.

    Hmm interesting. So this could be an original racing dial? It does have a 321 which seems to check out.

    I think it is a relatively well known variant of 145.012 racing dial although very rare. You can find several picture of it.

    There are also some threads about it apparently.

    Dial might be legit. Those are mk2 hour/minute hands if I'm not mistaken. The length of the Chrono second hand is interesting...

    So could it be that it's a legit dial, and the hands we swapped with later orange ones to get as close to the original red set as possible?

    I believe the dial was legit, indeed. Some more luck and it could have been mine. Unfortunately somebody paid faster... ::censored::
    I wouldn't care much of the rest of the watch, even if I had to bin it. The value of the dial is about 10x times the price this watch has sold... ::facepalm1::
