Your thoughts and observations
What the sellers description is
What you know about the seller
I have a pogue and I love it but am not an expert and they are an absolute minefield. There are some good websites with lots of info regarding spotting fakes and the various "tells" regarding this.
Read up and then come back with more info.
I think price is the key issue here. I don’t love the missing lume on the hands and damage on the subdial but if the price was right I would swap the hands and be good with it
All ready Big thanks for the reply's.
Asking price is 695€
Not a true Pogue really is it ?
Seller has good reviews, the watch is from 1976 and had a service.
Some background reading @Jaco166
For me, the watch is unattractive.
I'd request closer pics of the seconds- and sub dial hands, hard to judge their condition or if they might have been replaced in the current ones.
I have seen a lot worse. The dial (bar the lume rot) is actually in very good condition and the H/M hands could easily be relumed (as could the dial). The movement (from what we can see of it) looks clean with no obvious signs of abuse.
Everything looks original (or at least correct).
Subdial has a lot of damage, hands are bad, lume is fair-poor, rotating bezel very faded. I don't think its redial or fake but poor condition I would leave for sure.
Leave, as soon as you're out of sight, run.
(You'll find a better one, guaranteed. )
For that money you can find one looking more like this from 1973
