    looks OK, hands relumed, might be nice to have mvmt shot if it's making weird noise? also get at least one shot showing correct chrono hands reset ?

    The second is redial for sure but the first merits further investigation as it appears to be an enamel dial.

    "Enamel dial" is considered a good or bad restoration procedure for collectors in terms of value of the watch and not aeshetic?
    Sorry for my noob question!

    Just wondering if the hands should be red for the month dial. Also should 31 on the date dial be in red as well?

    On the steel one, i find the right subdial a little of center to the left, and the print on the left subdial second markers a little uneven ?

    Enamel dials are very expensive to make. I don’t see this as a redial option. Therefore if this is indeed enamel it is factory. Like I said, more research needed. We know UG made watches with enamel dials.

    However the seller does not want to open the case for a movement shot so caveat emptor.

    Both look like redials to me.
    Also, the steel example has an unusual polish on the caseback.
