THIS ISNT REAL

Hello,

I noticed your listing for this just a few minutes ago. I gotta say that this watch isn't real.

Here's Amer's listing a few years back

Amer's is one of the two known original setup for the watch. I own the other

The one from Amer's listing has the same exact case as mine while yours is a Wakmann case which probably dates to the 70's (because of the inner part of the caseback - that was a later logo). I also don't think this was made by Wakmann. The hands on Amer differ from mine (its probably before or after mine - hard to date it).

The hands on yours are completely wrong. The sub hands should have been painted to make it more visible as the sub dials itself are painted black. I'm sure one could make an argument that the steel pops out but if you look at the two, mine and Amer's, they are all painted either red or orange.
