Blueberry Waffles offered from Munich *LINK*
In Response To: waffle factory? ()

here's one offered from Munich, with waffle markers and blue registers - - -

no "Tool" marking on the back . . . no luminous on the dial . . . simple script . . . same-weighted lines on registers . . . awful alignment of the applied markers [looks like my kids stuck them on with a glue stick].

seems consistent with the Germany - London axis.



: Thing is, this story is not as obvious as the
: one off Camarrera GMT put together as there
: seems to have been many of these made.

: As far as I understand, case and movement are
: correct on these watches. As far as I know,
: no other manufacturer sold Monaco shaped
: cases (unlike, eg, Autavia, Camaro etc).

: So I can see three possibilities: 1) small run
: pure fake ... seems unlikely if movement is
: ok ? Or is movement easy to source?
: 2) put together where someone got spare cases,
: movements from Heuer, had to make dials from
: scratch (still did pretty good job)
: 3) is from Heuer, but somehow quality control
: slipped ?

: Where would you vote?

: Might be interesting to know how many, where
: and when these Monacos were first seen if
: OTD'ers can contrib.

: For me (a) I dont own one (b) first saw one in
: London 6 months ago, offered by supposedly
: correct dealer (but I don't know him). Seen
: many on ebay in last few months.
