    Service dial, serial # is too late to be a 2998-5 so the movement SN and caseback don't match. Movement has at least one part from later 321 references, may be other issues.

    It does has some nice qualities and would make a great wearable watch but I am guessing the price is the issue? I would buy it in a heartbeat if it was the right price.

    Edit: If movement is from 2998-62 it may be original

    T-Swiss Made-T in a 2998-5?
    Also the dial itself looks just very unattractive.
    Hands need to be relumed, or a pair of original ones need to be sourced (there is a pair of original hands FS atm on Ebay, but they are 8k €)
    The DON although turning somewhat green/grey is heavily dinged up and last but not least the movement looks very very unattractive from an esthetic point of view.

    The price is about right, but this watch needs love and a lot of cash to be put back in great shape.

    Cheers,

    Max

    How do we identify and know if a seller account is a hacked one or not?

    When this 2998-5 first appeared, I had messaged the seller scammer asking a question.
    Once Ebay realized there was a a fraud, they close the account and notify anyone who contacted or bid.
    That was yesterday.
