Too good to be true or a gem and unique chance?
Difficult to say if it’s re-lumed? What do you think?

Hmm. If you like a 24 hour dial maybe worth a try.

see no indication of a relume, general condition is stellar, no fading or moisture damage on the sliderule insert, even the strap seems to be the one originally mounted.
would, of course, prefer macro shots and ideally loupe it myself, but would say original.

Thank you fred.
The only thing brought me to hestitate is that the 10 lume is somehow overlap/connected. And the 2’s are not lumed as sharp as it should be, i mean where the curve of 2 joins the - of 2. Hope i explain it clear.
