I share your skepticism as to the chrono dials, and also your uncertainty as to whether or not it's a working watch. It's all over Ebay, but the ads are ambiguous as to function. I sent five or six sellers a question asking if it's a real watch or only a model. I figure I'll get a few stock replies but probably one or two genuine answers. If it's a real watch, I'll probably buy one in order to prank some of my smoker friends.Only $7 online. If someone buys it please review! Looks like a non-functional chrono, and I'm not sure if it's even a working watch.
