I'd really appreciate some guidance on the following Milgauss 1019. Does this look overpolished and are there any concerns with the dial?

Are there any other particular things to be careful of with this reference (aside from making sure that the Faraday cage is present?)

Many thanks in advance, Ed.

dial and original hands. Also, check that a 1580 is present along with the "M"

Would you be able to share the tell-tale signs for replacement dial/hands? Is it that the hands aren't beveled?

What do you think of this one? Hands seem to be original but I'm quite concerned about corrosion in the caseback...
