    Well, the seller got a serial number and case reference from somewhere, so presumably they are on the inside of the caseback.

    Ask him for a photo. He mentions the logo on the inside of the caseback. My bet is it is OK.

    His reply

    "
    Hello,
    I'm sorry but I'm on vacation abroad and the watch remained at home, I did not take more pictures . The background is original and engraved with the serial number.
    Regards."

    @LouS I trust your opinion. Could you please say something about the compur I posted above that was sold on ebay. Does it look original?

    I'm not satisfied that the dial is original. I particularly dislike the font of the minute and tachymeter track. It has also had a polish or four.

    Saw this Polerouter Date for sale on Chrono24. Difficult to tell from small screen of my telephone, but looks like accent is missing from second e in Geneve and, although I am less sure, not a signed crystal. I find this remarkable given asking price of 1000 Euro. I've seen the Spanish seller move a few nice Polerouters in the past. 3525542gross.jpg 3525542d.jpg
