    Hi all !
    I have a watch belt for golf.
    Can you tell us about the year of production and its scarcity?
    Thank you very much.

    The poor quality and very modern looking engraving of the misspelled maker's name in the case is sure curious. Also the dial has been masked and the name manipulated, reprinted, or changed. Firmly in the buyer-beware territory. I would trust nothing about it, including the hallmarks.

    I can't stop looking at these photos. Now I see in the center of the case (where the dial sits) the circular sanding marks that removed the original markings there before the (surely fake) hallmarks were added, and also the ratchet wheel has been sanded down, probably to remove the original maker's name.

    It's a shame, because it was a very neat watch before it got faked up.

    The movement looks strangely like a Tavennes. Cyma.

    For starters, the case hallmark isn't even spelled correctly!

    Complete forgery.
