In Response To: Re: Funny-Looking Fake ()

I can't find any genuine Heuer parts on this one, so I would call it totally fake. Notice the silly collection of hands and needles. It is a one-off piece, likely made in South America.

We are seeing a lot of this genre / style from South America. Typical elements include:

  • Heuer and Leonidas on the dial
  • big, block-letters for "HEUER" on the movement
  • often either "17 Rubis" or "Chronographe" on the dial

    I added several pieces to the Gallery of Fakes tonight. It's tough to keep pace with the guys selling these things.



    : How do people make these. Is there anything
    : orginal and they mix and match to get a
    : watch? ie FrankenHeuer. Or are they totally
    : fake? I understand the Kirium and Link type
    : fakes but old Heuers? Is this a one off or
    : one of a million from China?
