Re: Case side comparison-surely the same watch....

Thanks Darwin.

Not a bad price! (for an original untampered ChronoMatic.) However wrong case, wrong hands, swapped movement (I don't understand why this was done, maybe I'm missing something, or maybe in a rush to get it for sale a non-working movement was swapped for a working one? Pure speculation though. )'re paying 25keuro for a mixed up 1153, GF bracelet and a ChronoMatic dial.

With a bit more time and effort, surely a 147xxx case and correct hands could have been found to at least TRY and be truer to the original. I guess that wasn't the plan of the buyer/seller though.

This falls smack bang in the 'franken' category sadly.
