    Sold for 1.1k Eur, probably hurt by the bank wire only payment mode.

    Hodinkee highlighted this as nice example of a power reserve Cal 294 in their latest Bring a Loupe. Spot what's wrong... ::facepalm1::

    @lethalwl - I believe the inner dial disc is non rotating with a 60 min track, it's not a power reserve. Compare with the rest of the examples in this thread.

    Not a Power Reserve
    Should be max 45 on the disk
    Inner disk doesn't rotate
    Disk markings for 60 minutes minute hand
    No Conquest on dial
    No 3 stars on dial
    No Swiss Made just Swiss
    13 in the date window :confused:

    Like having Hodikee cover for obvious reasons
    but how about getting it right

    Also wrong crown for a power reserve.:cautious:
    We've only seen these with bowlers or scallops.

    That's correct. But look closer
    HIS caseback on his listing is INCORRECT( see the ridge?)
    The Lugs are Not numbered as they should be either
    I have both.
    It should look like this:

    Also, have they shown the movement ?....._::facepalm1::
    Last I checked this dealer hasn't opened the case .... is it really hiding a 294 ??

    Dealer knows all this, by the way

    Very weird and disappointing also from Oredelmondo. They are supposed to be top Longines experts, at least for the 1940s.
    Is this yet another example of the pervasive corruption of greed we've now seen repeatedly from several major market players?
