Or it might be a very nice original watch  :-)
I have bid on auctions like these before, and (sometimes) got lucky. (not every time  :-( )

But the "new" photos are still crappy.
Is it really a badly brassed bezel, or is it bakelite bezel which has cracked and lifted, and/or developed some fungus growth? I have one here which looked pretty good in better photos than those, but when received had cracks between the clear bakelite and colour,causing discolouration  which will really require being redone if it proves that that process can be replicated.

 :what :yeller :wehe   worst looking BRASS bezel i think i EVER have seen!! the exposed brass has turned GREEN!!that can be redone by BWG, he replates them to look like NEW. dial/hands look very good, but i would be real concerned about the CRUD on the back of the case, cant really tell if it is rust or....?? wonder what the inside looks like, he did say it "runs".that probably means the second hand moves. seller appears not to be a "watch person"," the watch has 3 hands". we will see what this does. second hand is not correct, not sure where it came from, but i have to admit it IS easier to see than the "stock" SW. i dont believe there is any way to restore the plastic insert bezel, how bout it BUTCH??
