Ok thanks one and all
Sorry Stewart, it`s just I am trying to turn this into a long running thread, as the fake watch market is causing chaos, and many are left confused or at a loss in general.
Yes, note the first link in my last post chaps, http://www.bukowskismarket.com/items/115381/images/3
they bid 789 euros for a fake, correct? this seems to be another version of mine, with chronographe incabloc swiss made, no emblem on crown etc....
http://www.chrono24.com/en/heuer/2-register-chronograph-circa-1970s--id1884508.htm?picnum=0&tab=pics which model is this by the by?
I paid-wait for it- 120 quid for mine, can change dial and still have a watch worth double just due to movement and case.
Questions, if I can borrow your expertise once again! forgive me....
The dial we are saying is falsified, therefore it isnt Heuer, but are we saying it is also NOT a copy of any existing Heuer? so it was falsified in that odd way one sometimes sees on Rolex?? so, double fake so to speak?
I am looking at the watch now, and the face screams quality......applied markers with the original phosphorous sections, with tiny aged phosphorous dots below them. The emblem doesnt seem very crude, but it is not applied.
Regarding the face, is it the same case as with omega, that removing the face will reveal numbers etc which provide info on authenticity? for example, if one were to go out and out to prove this to be a fake Heuer, what must be done? if I take it to my watchsmith, and have him take it apart would that do any good?
Thanks again and sorry for seeming stubborn, I want to tie up all loose ends so that this thread will remain a shrine for lost souls!!! such as the poor fool selling one identical to mine on ebay Italy for 1,300 euros buy it now. In Genova, where oddly enough I bought mine.
This couldnt be an odd continental model could it???
: I'd agree with the consensus. Not a Heuer I'm afraid.
: If we look long enough we will find this with a different maker on
: the dial or as a sterile dial
: The logo also lack finesse and has been applied at some point in
: this watches life
