    Hi All
    Can you please give me your opinion on this Compax.
    Seems correct to me but I am not sure tf the hour and minute hands are from this dial.

    Hands have lost their lume but are original. My watch for comparison:

    I don't believe that the hour and minute hands belong to this watch, they have the wrong length. I even doubt that they are UG originals

    The seconds subdial hand is wrong too...

    Guilty!
    Probably needs a lot of work but I will take the risk.
    Dial seems very good

    Agree and the movement doesn't look very good either what's strange because the seller is a well known spanish watchmaker, who even has is own brand in the market:

    It is not a military watch. FS stands for "Ferrovie Stato" which means state railways. They are nice and relatively cheap going between Euro 150 and 300 depending on condition.

    Yes, any UG aficianado knows that.
    Hence my "Oops!" comment.
    Bleedin' obvious to us but not to that dealer.
