Quality Control Issue ? ? ?

I'm not sure how this one made it through quality control at Crown & Caliber, but I will send them a note about the watch.

Maybe for parts it is worth something like $1,000, right? Assuming movement is OK?



: Hi guys,
: Just came across this watch and wondered if this really is the kind
: of watch that Crown & Caliber wants to sell.

: Pushers, bezel, all the hands incorrect and dial repaint.
: "Replacement parts are authentic"?? Really? That bezel
: insert as well?
: "Dial is believed to have been refinished at some point in the
: past as “Swiss” logo above date window does not match other
: models."???
: To me that dial looks like a complete fake.
: No specific info on the reference, no serial number number,.....
: I remember a dramatic result of that Heuer100 auction.
: Not sure this will help to restore confidence.

: This is really something I cannot understand.
: Is this ignorance? Let's hope it is.

: Best,
: B
