Chinese fake of any swiss. I never heard of Fredo so I wanted to check if that brand really exited.

It looks like a cylinder, which is a low-end Swiss movement and not easy to get repaired if not working. It will cost you a lot to get it repaired, probably more than $200. The case is partly brass and not silver.

I'm with Adam here, and I'd leave it alone, but it's your choice in the end!

Are ads for sale watches and prices supposed to be discussed? I mean we can talk about the watch and its origins like any other, but are we supposed to discuss prices and things?

Yes, thanks for that, Squite. This is what happens when I don't log in for a day :excited:

Discussion of items for sale is not allowed. It is also fairly evident that Angelus has illegally published photos from somewhere without permission of the owner. He is also inviting discussion of the value of an item which is prohibited.

All of that seems sufficient reason to close the thread, which will now be referred to the Moderating Team to decide if it should be deleted. Please PM me if you want to discuss this action.
