Just joined after being given a watch I inherited from my late father in law.
Bad news I'm afraid Gareth, the watch is a really bad fake, or counterfeit, as it should more correctly be called.
PS: My commiserations on the passing of your FIL.
Oh Dear.....that might strain the family relationship. Kind regards. Achim
Does that say Speednaster on the bracelet
Sorry for your loss. Your family member likely never knew it was counterfeit and enjoyed the watch. No harm done there. If you find the who sold him the watch, you should straighten him/her out
That bracelet doesn’t match the dial - dial says it’s a Seanaster
Very sorry for your loss.
My advice, don't say much to your family about the watch being fake. As long as nobody tries to sell it as real, maybe ignorance is bliss?
The back says speedmaster, but the dial says seamaster. Which one were they trying to fake?
Nothing against you Gareth. You’ve stumbled into a murder hornets nest.
Stick around Gareth. I made a bad Craigslist purchase a couple of years ago when I first started and got laughed at. Now a big triangle 165.024, 69 220 Speedy and 1964 Speedy later and I’ve gone full blown collector. Good luck
