Re: Siffert Going Cheap on ebay?
In Response To: Siffert Going Cheap on ebay? ()

Sorry, pushed the button a bit too early.
I agree with Kav. This one is not 100% authentical.I happen to have one of threse myself and hold it in my hand while I compare them.

The second stopper on my watch is arrow-shaped or call it wedge-shaped.The hour and minutes hand also have a pointed end ( like a sword)instead of the e-bay version with two 90 degrees angles.
Finally the little hands on the subdials should be white.The one on e-bay seems to metallic coloured hands.
I am not sure whether I can recognize blue markers on the e-bay version but mine sure has.

Important is also the crystal. This should be flat with a sharp edge where it contacts the case.

Can anybody agree on this comparison?

Greeting to all
