Re: Stay away!
In Response To: Stay away! ()

: Hi guys,

: sorry but this is not a watch I would buy...

: The movement is in terrible condition. Not only
: extremely dirty but scratched bridges, rusty
: screws (a clear sign of humility in the
: watch) and, as far as I can see, one coloum
: of the chrono steering wheel is missing. The
: chrono centerwheel is not adjusted in the
: right way, so it s scratching at the chrono
: bridge. The movement loooks like treated by
: a tractor mechanic.

: Furthermore you should replace the dial and the
: main hands. The case is far from
: "mint" but perhaps with some hours
: of work it could be restored. The crown
: should be signed anyway.

: All in all I would wait for a better one.

: Sorry,

: Matthias

Ok, appreciate your help. Thanks
