Those hands are in-correct and the seconds hand should be red and not black. Also the chapter ring is not correct!
Steer clear!!

So, even I (the untrained eye), can tell the hands are wrong. But how do you know the rest of it is aftermarket? What should I be looking for?

Well the chapter ring is white. They came in yellow or black (maybe dark
blue too?). While they have often faded to a dirty white, they're never bright white like that one.

The caseback appears to have been re-brushed and the mesh bracelet is not original.

The dial is a funny orange colour, but that may just be the light. Not sure if it's original or repainted.

Keep looking and you'll eventually find a nice original example.
