Opinions on this 5513?

Would anyone be so kind as to give an opinion on the condition of this 5513? It's a replacement bezel I assume but I wonder about the dial and other parts.

As well as the polishing.

Replacement insert...bottom logs look a little slim or overpolished...hands are too rough for my liking....dial looks very nice

If you have the cash keep looking, I had a funny looking bezel that looked like that on a watch I bought - I suspected fake, even if it’s real it’s worth $100 or so... I just swapped it out.

If you are trying to stay @ that budget get a Tudor 79090 or 76100, for the money your spending you could have a mint one. Just a suggestion. This is my daily wearer.

They charge extra for the rusty hands now, it’s rebranded as “original hands with patina”.

Not a great example. Case has been overly polished, and the hands are very rough. Rust on the hands could be an indication that water/excess humidity got into the watch at some point.

Staying with the superhero theme, I guess we can call it the “Iron Man” LOL
