    Alternatively, I considered naming this thread: How to buy a vintage Compur chronograph, install a Medico-Compax dial, and fake a Hermes signature.

    Things were going so well until that accent grave.

    (Well, not really.)

    And in case you had any doubt that it was a fake signature... they added this charming little detail to the caseback:

    The faussaire also went a little too thick in the relume job on the minute hand, and a little too thin on the hour hand. Oh, and always remember to resize your subdial hands when transplanting to a smaller dial. Very sloppy.

    Such a waste of a beautiful NOS dial and a transitional pusher case. Shame.

    <should have known better>. #NSFW

    Dear Children,
    Don't 'google' Girth Brooks, naively thinking that it's some joke about the country singer, Garth Brooks. It's not. Just think about it for a second.

    Sincerely,
    Dear-god-enough-with-these-godamn-double-triple-quintuple-signed-fake Universals already.

    Apropos of!!!!!

    Lol "Girth Brooks" is the actor Ben Affleck in a regular SNL sketch. It's totally a goof on Garth Brooks (part of it)

    in the above sketch ^^^ he was pitching fake Hermes handbags as "Herman's Handbags" and Herpes Handbags" hahaha



    remember - i work nights and have a tv in my office.

    Will this be reported (the fake watch of course, not Girth Brooks)? Would be a shame to see someone spend a fortune on this franken fake.
