    Judging by the condition it doesn't look like uncle enjoyed wearing his watch very much...

    agreed, and although im some what watch repair capable, I definitely wouldnt attempt the switch over myself. Would never try to do anything on a watch that costs over $200.

    That's the only thing that bothers me too. I would be asking for a full-resolution dial photo, as it's not exactly cheap, and if there's still room for doubt then give it a miss.

    i'm not sure but the inner dial seems "maybe" refinished to me, being not as sharp as the outer ring but it could be the picture.

    Condition of the paint is worse on the inner. I am wondering if it is a camera angle issue. Agree the apparent misalign and also placement of Lume dots is concerning.

    that case is definitely nice, but I do have a question, do folks here sort of ignore watches from certain countries? or less inclined to make a purchase based on where the watch is located? or do folks adhere to the trust the seller

    Any thoughts on this 18k rose gold cased UG chronograph? The sub-dial and the second hand looks a bit odd to me, but I'm not too well versed with these.

    Second hand is wrong for sure, do you have a better picture of the dial?

    References: all’s well except the second hand and the fact that the case was drilled to get rid of the #!!!!### female spring bars.
