    OK ok.. its not a fake but i love the liberal application of the phrase NOS literally "New Old Stock" < (mint never worn 40s factory / shop floor condition)

    Vntg Longines Military Style SS All Orig Cond NOS Vintage Military Canvas Band
    Condition:
    Used


    Dont get me wrong its not a bad watch! but its not a NOS watch... Thinking people just see the term and add it in without knowing what it means?

    "well if his watch is a NOS my watch damn sure better be a NOS to!"

    "hey i found this watch with my metal detector i hope its a NOS!"

    "Are you wearing a NOS?"

    "i inherited what i think is a rare NOS! i remember my grandad wore it EVERY day for over 60 years.. "

    NOS NOS NOS!

    F**k me!

    This thread is a magnet for the instant snap posters and idiots who keep using a phone for internet access instead of a proper tool.
    (A COMPUTER WITH A SCREEN).

    And to @FullyWound, you should know better.

    :whipped:


    If it's not a genuine fake (see what I did there :D) then post the f*cker somewhere else!

    Mods, make this thread like the FS thread with a minimum post count so only experienced members can post.

    There is a thread where you can post pics and ask it a particular watch is fake. I suggest you take some pics of the dial, case and movement, and post them in that thread.

    Fake description =) and it didn't really "Fit" anywhere better.. consider it a sideline from the norm i did literally open with

    "OK ok.. it's not a fake but"...

    And it is kinda funny.. Cant we just all be a little less "Bitchy"

    heed caution when buying a seamaster 120 165.027 these seem to be pretty flaky franken / fakes

    fake yet well printed dials T-T's but all luminova Fake Cases Fake Dials TOTALLY Fake bezels

    and the VOLUMES they are selling in is obscene the seller above has sold like 12 since march

    8 Next pictures are one of mine (SOLD) the rest are all "Dodge"

    There are maybe 5 genuine articles on ebay (but not all great examples) the rest are ALL Weird

    hehe heeh! haha! YES!

    Other than this what is this weird franken! thats an 861 alright yea! (no ones got that good at faking these have they?! but in a fabricated case and bezel.. probably the strap too.. tho this could be ok added later strap looks 19mm case looks 20mm no fit good..

    is that a 29 serial ?
    1970 29,000,000 etc

    but the step dial hands and movement look good no? i mean i know its not "what it says on the tin" by a longshot! but im gonna offer £400 hehe

    yea this watch is NOT all that fake but its not "right" either bezel is 100% fake movement is good dial hands good case iust suspect but it could be the photographs its really hard to tell..

    Ive messaged the seller he seems reasonable. I dont think anyone wants to hear their watch is fake especially if they really dont know.. I think he too has been somewhat duped into buying it possibly he has plenty of OK watches but is an inexperienced seller (by feedback)

    Im going to try to help!
