Agree, to the point that the crown wheel and ratchet wheel do not have the appearance of the rest of the movement - they look noticeably more shiny and polished.Well, ... either the ratchet wheel was salvaged from a wrecked Rolex-signed Cortebert movement, or the Rolex engraving is fake.
Which part? That's a comedy collection of bits. If one part is filthy, another should not have a mirror finish. Look at the two screws holding the balance. The colour of the balance bridge is totally mismatched to the rest of the movement. As for the addition of Rolex branded parts, well the vendor does have a sense of humour.watch_expert.krd said:what is this?

OK, we know that this one isn't the same as the original, but ignoring that, how old is the museum ship?wikipedia said:First, suppose that the famous ship sailed by the hero Theseus in a great battle has been kept in a harbour as a museum piece. As the years go by some of the wooden parts begin to rot and are replaced by new ones. After a century or so, all of the parts have been replaced. Is the "restored" ship still the same object as the original?
