Does Auctionata Guarantee of Authenticity Cover "Franken"?
In Response To: 1st/2nd execution case... ()

Auctionata has a Guarantee that seems to cover authenticity . . . with the case, dial and hands of this watch being from three different eras, it seems to be a plain old "Franken" to me.



: Jeff,

: Yes, you are correct. Serial of 52855 makes that it should have 1st
: execution dial/hands rather then the 3rd execution aka
: "Rindt" dial.

: And ofcourse also minute and hour hands not correct for this early
: serial (and even not for Rindt dial).

: Probably dial and hands replaced at some point at service?

: Best,
: Abel.
