  1. Omega Fake Busters
    Hello! I am considering buying this Omega Geneve. I am not an experienced watch collector so I would like some help. I am 99% certain the watch itself is not a fake (or at least not completely a fake) since there is engraving on the case back, stating that it was given to an individual for 20...
  2. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Hi. I was just wondering if you could tell me if this ref. 7855 is a redial? First Longines purchase but just want to make sure it's legit. Thanks.
  3. Vintage & Pocket watches
    It is a Piaget 12603 from the 1960s. Serial number: 90551
  4. IWC
    Hello! I would appreciate if someone could help me if the dial of this watch is original or not. Compared to most other IWC's from this time period, the lettering seems oddly thick. Thank you!
  5. Vintage & Pocket watches
    I'm new to vintage and trying to learn more about it. I would like if you could tell me if this watch is redialed or any other problems you encounter. If you could provide me with tips for recognizing redials or overpolished watches would be of great help, but is understandable if you don't...
  6. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Auction going on currently Christie's, dial has been reprinted and hands have been relumed, lightly polished but good condition case and extract from archives confirming its date of sale circa 1957. It does have original crown and the quite rare 12-600 movement (first automatic from Patek)...
  7. Jaeger-LeCoultre
    I am fairly new to the world of vintage watches and ebay is truly a minefield. Right now I am trying to learn about what makes an authentic JLC Futurematic because that icon is a top contender for the next acquisition (probably a Dubey first :)). Anyways, saw this post on Ebay...
  8. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Recently got hooked on vintage watches, so I am eager to learn how to detect redials. This is an example from ebay of a bad dial restoration and in my opinion is a good learning material. Obviously the seller is honest and posted pictures of the dial before the restoration. Before redial (I...
  9. Vintage & Pocket watches
    I found a nice Gruen 462 recently, but the dial was a nightmare. Not only is all the text and finish gone, but someone scrawled the numbers on it with a ballpoint pen. o| I prefer original dials in nearly all cases, but ballpoint numbers is a bit much. Does anyone have an image of what such...
  10. Vintage & Pocket watches
    I have read horror stories about sending vintage watches for service and owners getting something they didn't expect in return - a polished case, relumed hands or dial, new hands, etc. Is there a standard note/list of "please don't change ______" that is recommended when having a watch...
  11. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Does this GP look like a redial? The "Girard-Perregaux" text looks a bit...wobbly? And the "K" in "HAWK" is too far from the "W"? Thanks for your help in advance!
  12. Omega Fake Busters
    Hello folks, When in doubt, seek an expert's opinion! I picked up this vintage Omega cal. 265 and, although I rather like the stainless dial, I have my suspicions about it. The watch has a lovely English case, by Dennison, that matches the date of the movement - 1951-52. The movement is...

  14. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Hi all! I'm a massive fan of the site and forums but this is my first post. I recently acquired a Vulcain Cricket alarm watch from everyone's favourite online marketplace and would like some advise from the esteemed members here. After receiving the watch, the first thing I noticed (which...
  15. Omega
    I'd appreciate your kind expertise. I'm thinking this 60's era Constellation has a re-dial of some sort. Can anyone confirm my suspicions? Thanks much for your expertise! Purchased this Constellation a bit ago and had my AD check it out before return period was over. Internally, it's a 564...
  16. Russian watches
    Some of the redials and outright fake watches for sale can be easily identified if you know where to look. Should all the clues and giveaways be shared in the forum? One argument for "no" is that sharing this information helps the forgers to improve their fakes. Some of us believe that the...
  17. Russian watches
    Hello all,... I've noticed something disturbing and need your opinions. An EBAY seller named VYMPEL2209 has a number of watches that have caught my eye over the last two weeks. Usually, they are in excellent condition and on the borderline of "hard to find" at a price that is almost decent ( by...
  18. Rolex & Tudor
    Redial/Service Dial & Leather Strap Suggestions for my Ref. 1002 SS Non-Date Oyster Perpetual? My Ref. 1002 Stainless Steel No-Date Oyster Perpetual is currently at the RSC in San Francisco for a servicing and cleanup. I'm thinking about acquiring a leather strap for this watch, to make it a...
  19. Vintage & Pocket watches
    I saw this ebay seller and his watches seem to be redials. Anyone dealt with him before [eagertowatch]? I was looking at this one: The anchor seems to be glued on. Did this watch have the rotating anchor?
