Is This Tudor Legit or a Complete Hot Mess?

Post by namor » Wed Oct 23, 2019 6:18 am

There seems to be so many things that don't jibe on this watch, but I'm far from expert on these matters. What say the cogniscenti?

Run away and don't look back.

Bezel, Case, Dial, Hands, caseback, bracelet...all no Bueno.
“To absent friends, lost loves, old gods, and the season of mists; and may each and every one of us always give the devil his due.”
― Neil Gaiman, The Sandman

I bought a cheap watch from a crazy man
Floating down canal
It doesn't use numbers or moving hands
It always just says now
Now you may be thinking that I was had
But this watch is never wrong
And If I have trouble the warranty said
Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On

Something looks off Seth. The bezel looks wrong and so does the finish on the caseback. Not to mention the movement looks wrong. Weird it looks like a franken.

Not an expert, but I'm sure the case, bracelet, clasp, and bezel are all fugazi. And I have a hard time believing that movement is genuine.

I'm really, really suspicious about the caseback, hands, and dial, too.

On edit: in fact, I'm sure the caseback is crap. Look at how bad the engraving is. And I don't like the crown, either.

My guess is total fake as opposed to franken. Either way, wouldn't touch this one.

I’m not a vintage guy, but that does less than nothing for me.

those caseback engravings are a joke, among other glaring issues... I'm surprised at you, Seth :lol:

Now that you mention, it does look like something a 4 year old would draw with a crayon.

Gear wheel teeth on the movement alone look meth'd up.

And yet...bidding on it is up to $1,250. I guess Barnum was right
