    Hello Experts,

    Been a while since I've posted - had to cut back on the obsession ... now the budget allows me to get back into it.

    Found this one in a non-watch auction house. Unfortunately no photos of its innards. Exterior condition looks authentic, though the number subdial overspill makes me nervous ... thoughts?

    Many advance thanks.

    The O is too condensed and thus the kerning between O and M is too large. The upstroke on the M is too angled. The center bar of E is too long, not to mention the blob at the top arm. And the dial texture looks like paper.

    And, though a small thing, the buckle is not original.
