    The seller seems pretty honest in his description. Redialed (though not horribly done) and broken. Looks like it drove a watchmaker crazy and the seller decided to cut his losses and let the next owner fix it.

    It's not a "series". They just added the store's name to the dial. Here is a link to the website for the store.

    Hope this helps,

    Some give it a premium ( Turler ) and others don't. Depends on who you talk to.

    The writing of 'Turler' is different because applied to the dial later than the rest of the markings. As for Turler, thing of it as the Tourneau of Switzerland. They were probably tonier in the past, but now it is a chain retailer.

    No, not good. That's a lot of € for a repainted dial.

    Yep, agree, that is a redial. Avoid.

    Best I can tell from the out of focus pictures, it seems correct. And the seller knows it - asking price more that GBP 4000!
