    no, it is not. That is a redial, and not a good one.

    Printing is uneven, and printed over non-removable dial furniture, subdials not properly centered. If you can't spot this as a redial, you need to do a little more training for your eye before spending your hard-earned.

    Thanks for pointing out the exact issues I should be looking at.

    Might be a good idea to add a cooling off interval when in the heat of the chase.

    +1 definitely take some dial to re-evaluate. particularly vintage watches, it's dangerous to fall into the trap of "oh but what if this opportunity doesn't come up ever again"

    Unless it's an ultra rare 10 pieces made patek, chances are you'll get another opportunity at it at some point!

    i find the dial messy, other will jump in, i would pass, too expensive (wrong hands, markers, redial).

    I’m the new lucky owner of this watch (direct offer).

    I have doubts about the dial also, anyway it could be correct.

    I will do some research and post macro shots ;)

    The tachymetre looks good to me. There is another for sale down in New Zealand. I have no connection to the seller and this is his picture.

    Ref 181102 is a very rare bird indeed. I could neither afford nor wear one of these but what a glorious way to sign off the 60s Tri Compax.

    is there a missing bezel? Looks odd to me.

    @Larry S I know what you mean but all examples seem to look like that. Maybe UG decided that the dial was already busy enough, dunno.
