Re: "Heuer" Seafarer / Refinished Dial -- Listed A

: How much does the refinished dial de-value the watch?

Just curious for a few educated opinions.

: This past February, we had a discussion about a
: Seafarer that was listed on ebay. We
: concluded that (a) the name
: "Heuer" never appeared in a
: Seafarer dial (only the name
: "Abercrombie & Fitch"), and
: (b) the dial on this particular watch had
: been refinished. This was the subject of
: some controversy with the seller.

: I notice that this Seafarer, or a similar one,
: is listed today on ebay. I don't know
: whether this is the same seller / previous
: purchaser / someone else. I know that
: several readers are looking for Seafarers.
: Before bidding on this one, you might want
: to review our prior discussion, shown in the
: following frame - - -

: Previous Posting re Fake / Refinished
: Seafarer
