    Guys, here is a "better" picture of this dial. I won the item and asked the seller ...

    I still have my doubts but I think it's original. May I have your thought ? :)

    Looks pretty crisp to me. Redial alarms not going off.

    Erase your doubts - it's gorgeous; nicely done. Just shows how poor original seller pics can raise doubt and provide a great opportunity for a calculated gamble. Congratulations! Also, thank you for sharing these much more crisp pics.

    My irony sometimes gets missed through a forum post.

    Yes, I know this looks like a POS, but after following this listing multiple times, I was just wondering if it might look a bit better in person, maybe the buyer had a in-person experience with it before pulling the trigger.

    And if it might have been a Forum member, my learning experience would be enhanced if more pictures and an account of it were posted.

    My perspective is that if the seller is asking for a pile of cash and can't be bothered to take a decent photo there is something wrong.

    Nice watch. Is the lume of the hands original or refreshed?

    I am assuming refreshed. The hands are not original to my watch (the original hands are pencil blue hands which I have kept aside). I put these ones on because I was always fascinated by Sword hands.
