Butch, put down the crack pipe.

How can two sellers have the exact same pictures for their watches? Even if they are both in the same city.

There appear to be a lot of these in India and being presented by Indian sellers. And even wording, and sometimes pics, across different sellers are similar.

This one even has a picture of the "movement". Low enough resolution as to not zoom in very well.

So, this one is fake to I assume? Looks wrong to me in several way, particularly the movement is sub-Zodiac standard at least to my understanding? https://www.chrono24.dk/zodiac/zodiac-oversized-digital-aka-jumping-hour-70s-bfg-582-serviced--id14446743.htm

Fake, Zodiac never made this watch/model. Read the whole thread from the beginning.

I have been waiting 7 years for the email I just received but I am very saddened that this happened to them. At least we have a picture to post now as the sender was nice enough to supply us with it!

Dear Butch,

I recently purchased a vintage Zodiac jump hour via Catawiki. I have a strange feeling it's fake but I need evidence so I can report it to Catawiki and also give them a heads up that the seller is selling fakes. I would like to know more information if that's OK.

I also contacted Zodiac and still waiting for their response.

Thank you very much for your time. Any information would be greatly appreciated.


And my response?

Hi XXX,

I am sorry that you have that. Here is a thread on that very model.

Oh no, Butch! You just created an infinite loop of evil! Our universe is in great danger.

Yeah, I guess so. I honestly do wonder how many others have been duped by these watches though.

Now kiss the ring before you go.

Now being sold in the USA for a mere $120.50 and $25.00 shipping. Ah, but wait! They just happen to have another one...

384624742472

This brings up the age old question, if one buys a watch NOS and then resells it, is it still NOS? Notice this in the auction description.

Item specifics
Condition: Pre-owned
Seller Notes:
“NOS, Watch and bracelet in a very neat condition.”

Hmmm. OK, well here are a few from the usual Turkey and Pakistan sellers.
