What The Heck Is A "Franken" Watch?

HI All,
I have read the word here and on other forums. I have never seen a definition. I suspect I have a Franken Speedy Pro. But I don't really know what is meant by "Franken". It doesn't sound like a compliment.

Thanks, Sparky

I think "Franken" is generally used as a perjorative term-meaning a non-original watch being passed off as something it's not. On the other hand, a "Mod" watch generally refers to one altered by the owner without intent to decieve as to its true nature. I would call Stefan's Speedmaster a Mod, and a beautiful one at that :-!.
