I think this one is a Frankenstein, but I could be wrong I believe the early constellations were 17J bumper watches, the 1st rotors were I believe 19J then they went to 24. Looks like a rotor on this one when it should have been a bumper so I think the movements off. Also when I look at the dial something seems off the seconds width seems inconsistent at the date, maybe a refinish dial? Its 37mm, at $299 dont know if it is worth it as a franenstein.

Lesson #1
If you are posting a "fake vs real" watch on a forum, 99% chance it is Franken at best, crappy fake more often.

Lesson #2
You really counting on photos to determine if real? Super fakes are out there and unless you are a watchmaker with experience with the brand, you aren't going to catch it, even in person. Not so much with vintage but the vast range or previous models and configurations, you are not going to get more than 80% confidence level unless you stumble across a WIS who spends every waking moment researching the brand.

Lesson #3
Always buy the seller.

Lesson #4
If you don't take it to a watchmaker, and not the freaking mall kiosk, I suspect you either know it is fake or you are a cheapskate.
