    Yes sorry! I posted for advice! I just had a work to do and I was gonna edit the post later.
    First one looked fine for me but you know better!
    Second hand’s indicator that it’s wrong has to do with its length or something else or it should be gold too?

    This is available for auction on eBay. Seller does not know the reference number it appears to be polished off. New acrylic glass. What do you all think.. is it a frankin or original? How much should it be worth?
    Thank you

    The “date function” model is more expensive. How much he sells it? Or it’s an auction?

    No. The very quick glance giveaway is the tilted centering of TRI-COMPAX over the subdial. Many other things once you focus in.

    Hi,
    Does this look like an original or redial?
    Need feedback as I am considering to buy. Thank you.
    The numbers 20357-2 and 1972827 are written on the case.

    The dial looks perfectly original to me. Fantastically sharp case too.

    When I first saw this watch on Instagram, it was listed with a price of 650 Euros. It turned out that this was an error, and that the seller actually meant 1000 Euros. He offered a price of 900 Euros, which I accepted. Unfortunately, by then he had received a number of enquiries and decided that he might make more money by selling on eBay.

    I think it's a great watch but you will understand why I am not interested at 1500 Euros.

    The kind of risk/reward I live for :)

    I think it went cheaply partly because of the reasons mentioned above and also because it seemed to get listed more than once, which seems to always result in less interest/confidence in the item for sale.

    In addition, the chrono hand is wrong, both sub-dial hands are wrong, the crown is wrong and there appears to be some damage to the larger sub-dial. The lack of a movement shot will have put off many as will the apparent lack of case reference and serial numbers.

    Having said all of that, it may still have been worth the risk for a project watch at only 5500 Euros.
