Is there something wrong with this dial on my newly bought Seamaster De ville?

    So just to be sure, the seller can easily determine if it's a 565 without looking at the movement by trying the quickset. The crown has two detents, the first is for setting the time, and if you pull the crown out to the second detent it will advance the date one day. By clicking the crown back the date can be quickly and easily advanced as many days as needed.

    But probably it's a 562

    Exactly :D Thats how i found out that my previous de ville was a cal.565 thanks to this forum!! But IF she answers (think the seller is a she) and the movement unfortunately happens to be a cal.565 something is very wrong :/ and i will be sad.. I`ve already paid but the auction site has my money for 10 days and maybe there is a possibility to get my money back and send back the watch

    Catawiki sucks. But there is a escape. If the seller is a professional seller you have a 14 day return period. It's in the term and conditions of catawiki...

    Well. Dont get me wrong. You can find some nice watches over there. But what irritates me is that redials are being sold as genuine under the eye of the auctioneers and they dont know anything or dont do anything. And the people who are buying think it's safe because the auctioneer 'valued' the watch. It's just wrong. Anyway, good luck. Hope it's a 562... :thumbsup:

    I didnt get you wrong. I appreciate the input :) I have my eye on another piece here in sweden if this one isn`t what it seemed. Hopefully that one becomes less expensive

    They just don't care. Since they take 22% of each transaction their priority isn't integrity. But they do have rules against misrepresentation, so if such is the case you can push for a solution. Anyway most of what's listed is crap.

    Ok i see, but lets say it is a cal.565 as stated but the watch is made before 1965 (because of the loss of T`s) thats kinda tricky to solve ?:/

    Hi, today i took the watch to a dealer That opened it and the movement was indeed a cal.562 not cal.565 as the seller suggested. The movement was in Good condition and he dated the watch 1963!! 65EFDB78-FD9D-4192-81D4-98DCF38CF41E.jpeg 98D3EF2E-E8C9-4B21-A92B-C80FAA2BFE2A.jpeg

    Pure luck.. never Catawiki again.. but in this matter it went suprisingly well. The dial look different to my Otter seamaster deville.. kinda like satin or something?! Have you seen this dial before shabbaz?

    Most commonly referred to as a "linen" dial, because it looks like the weave of fabric.
