Relumed dial? Worse?

Hi all
Here is this drsd for sale.
I keep comparing the dial to real ones, it seems to me like a mk2. Something feels off with the indexes, is it from a bad relume ? Any chance it could just be the crystal?
Trying to educate myself here

Thanks!

Just noticed the insert is fake
I was too focused on the dial...

Not much looks original, we need to see movement and engraving between the lugs
Dial is terrible

I can’t manage to paste the link from my eBay app...It ended at 17k€

I saw the insert was fake but didn’t see evidence the dial was. The indexes look sluggish though...that’s why I thought bad relume. Is it completely fake?
Thanks for the answers!

Dial still would concern me

Case is garbage, as is everything else besides the movement (which could very well be frankened).
