It's One Strange Looking Watch

I have no clue whether it is real or put-together, but it sure looks strange to me.

After looking at loads of Autavias over the past few years, and almost as many Carreras, and the occasional Zodiac (some of which looked very much like the Carreras), this one just doesn't look "right" to me. The hands and dial (which come out of the Autavia family) seem too heavy for the more delicate looking case (which is out of the Carrera family).

This is just an opinion, and not a suggestion about its authenticity.

Thanks for bringing this one to our attention.
