I like the look of this Cortebert, but I haven't been able to find any other examples online that use this font on their dials. Is it a redial?

I'm also thinking the dial looks pretty clean, which makes me wonder whether it's been painted.

I tried looking up the serial number on the case back, but I wasn't able to find a database of Cortebert SNs.

At first I thought the accent mark over the E in Cortebert looked suspect (too curvy, like a comma), but then I found other similar examples online.

And since I haven't yet found another similar model, I'm not sure what the lugs are supposed to look like, or whether it's been overpolished.

What else jumps out about the watch, good or bad? I'm new to collecting and am eager to learn.Thanks all!

What are the signs of repolishing? I've read some posts here and on Omega Forums about this, but I'm still not able to detect it myself. I can see a kind of ripple on the front side of the lugs, near where they connect to the case. Is that from polishing? And the numbers on the back are clearly rubbed down a bit, I assume from wear?
