You could first tell the replica Rolex when you see it matter it is a real one or a fake, so identifying this redialed Rolex was considerably easy because the font is clearly wonky. However, they are other points that provide us with access to spot a redone dial, even when it is from the hands of a more qualified “artist” than the one responsible for this one.?
First, at the bottom of the dial of the T-Swiss Made-T has no place in a fake Rolex from the 1960s since this was used by Rolex replicas only from the 1980s (and again using a different font).
The indexes are another great telltale since they should have lume plots; the originals were likely shaved off when the dial was repainted. As a matter of fact, in most instances, the presence of lume on the hands should equate to some lime application on the indexes, and this general rule extends much beyond the world of vintage replica Rolex Cellini. Of course, exceptions exist, but they are rare. The lume on the hands is also too fresh, so those were either relumed or replaced.
In the end, and this is a bit less scientific, but the overall finish of the dial looks too fresh; the black color is very shiny, and the minute track is too white for a 50-year-old watch. It is more an impression than anything else but combined with the other facts that there is really no doubt that the original dial of this reference 1018 is long gone.
