I picked up this 6309-7040 some time ago and I’m trying to determine how to proceed. My question revolves around the hands. I like the subtle look of the dial and event the hands but the rust concerns me. Should I try to source some vintage hands or do they clean up ok?
The watch needs a service as it is running very fast.

They won't clean up, but you could get in touch with Uncleluck as he could plate them for you. But doing so will mean it would need reluming, that said I highly doubt that is original lume of course.

The dial looks to be a legit MT dial but has been restored where the silver text has been rather crudely drawn it looks like, with that in mind I think personally I wouldn't be inclined to spend too much time restoring or worrying about it as it is?

That watch has had a rough life! If it's running fine I would think it's best to leave it as is. If it's a huge concern for you, then try and source some hands as I doubt rust will clean off them too well.
