What actual proof do you have to your claim that your watch and Amers watch are “the two known original setup for the watch”?
Do you really think your Heli Reymond left the factory with red hands combined with orange accents on the dial? Of course it did not.
As you can see Amer has sold several sets of loose hands in the past identical to the hands on his Heli Reymond:
Here you can see what my watch looked like when I bought it (original sellers photos):
Does it look like the seller recently put together a franken watch? The only thing that has been done to it since I bought it is that it has gotten a new used pusher cap, identical to the original pusher.
I am not saying my watch left the factory looking like this - I simply don’t know as I did not own it when it was new. But what I am saying is that you should be more careful about pointing fingers and saying watches are franken until you have more substantial proof, such as a brochure or something from the 70’s. Especially since your own watch definitely did not leave the factory looking like it does today. You should perhaps remove it from your instagram feed, I am sure you don’t want the readers of this forum or your viewers in instagram to think that ruewatches are selling franken watches.
: its franken dude. sure let your buyer decide.
