Thanks so much for your reply.
what makes me suspicious is the back case, I couldn't find any matching one on other watches online.
About the missing lume, is this considered normal wear and tear ??

Case back is also ok.
That can happen with lume on older watches.

I'm not into pricing, but not much for an old quartz.

It is in a range, but with damaged hands it's not a good deal, imho.

You should consider a service cost north of $500.00. That missing lume is somewhere in that watch.
