    the original post was in reference to a black dial monodatic, which is no longer listed. Ebay is defaulting to a white dial monodatic since the other listing is gone....

    The "fine prints" - new eBay feature, haha:

    "The listing you’re looking for is no longer available. Check out this similar item we found for you."

    ;)

    Hoping I did not make a mistake. From my understanding chrono hand is not original. My real concern is the dial. I am really hoping it was not refinished. Seller informed me it was not, but I will leave it to the experts here.

    Would appreciate everyone’s thoughts.

    There is something wrong with the movement as well; it will need the following part 285 8270 as the existing one is broken ...

    I would return it ?

    Well I guess my lesson is learned. I paid about 1k for it, which I would assume is way too much.

    How hard is it to source and original dial for one of these?

    Yes, seems like there is too much wrong to keep. Let’s see if he will cancel.

    Thank you

    One last questions for everyone. If seller won’t accept cancelling... how expensive will it be to get an original dial?

    Getting the Sala Book is a good way to look and reference as well.

    Very hard. Hands are wrong as well.
