Greetings All - Just purchased this GMT Master 1675, 1.8m, Mark I. Watch is beautiful but had questions about the dial. does it appear to be relumed? it doesn't glow in any way and no other obvious signs that the dial was redone. opinions welcome. thanks!!

how can you tell? it almost looks like the lump is hand painted on. not sure if this is common practice with older dials.

...but pics in focus would help.
Lume is all over the place - some plots touch the minute track, others don't.Looks uneven and lumpy.
