You're right there Janne, but I've also noticed the slight misalignment of the "Officine Panerai" lettering that had been pointed out earlier. It also seems to me that the "Collimasonee Diamant" surface finish has been stamped rather than machined (the gooves seem deep and uniform, I might be wrong ...). I've seen Sea-gull movements with a similar kind of finish (don't get me wrong, they are really nice watches for the money), I suspect it is a Chinese fake (perhaps made in Gangzhou or Liaoning?).It is def. missing the Swan neck regulator.
Compared to the movement in my 111 these differences I can spot:
No Swan neck regulator
Officine Panerai imprint much thicker and Blue painted
The Bridges seems to have the Collimasonee Diamant surface
Is it possible it is a legit ETA with the Officine Panerai added?
Asian movement in a fake watch. There are a number of clues others have mentioned that show it's not a real Panerai movement, and there's no ETA logo engraved under the balance wheel - making it the Chinese knock-off movement.Please help a newbie. What movement is it in the picture? And also is it Swiss or Asian? How can you tell?
