Dial is cheap vietnam version we see around since 5-6 years, not even close with it's printing, there are better out nowadays you really have to loupe, with this one, it's as always, in detail totally off. Blow up your dial & compare with mine, then you see. Besides that, the OCC print is on top of lacquer printed, the 'submariner' print is down...

I get many emails from guys that are close buying it, happily I can warn them not doing it. A collector that wants to have a grail watch like this, should study every small detail of it before he spends his money... On below picture you see clearly how the original 6538 dial is made in layers, that should help you
