Aside from the polish, am I wrong to think this dial also looks too clean as the hands seem to have fully skeletonized/lost their lume? Or have I just been looking at too many dials lately?

I know it has a replaced crystal, so I'm guessing maybe it was just cleaned at that time - what do you guys think?

It could be refinished , you need better photos .

My assessment is similar to yours those hands dont match the dial condition !
The printing looks to heavy/ bold !
Is there swiss made at the bottom of the dial ?
do the minute markers space evenly ?

Its not a bad redial ( from what I can see ) and has been executed quite well but if you want originality then its a pass .

It looks to be a refurbished dial (look at the way Omega is written) but I’ve seen a lot worse.

Not sure about the hands. Obviously they are lacking lume but they might be original.

IDK, usually repainted dials they don't get the S correct on the Seamaster with the hook, this one looks ok to me but the pictures are quite small.

As per above comment from @Robbo12 if you use a loupe just check that the minute and seconds markers line up 100% there should be no spacing issues.

the lettering looks pretty good
