    Mystery CWC Diver on eBay

    Itís an automatic, supposedly from 81 but looks like it has had the hands and dial replaced. Is this a fake, a franken, or something interesting.

    I have no connection to the seller but I am considering getting an auto.

    Saw that a couple of days ago,
    The bezel is wrong, the caseback is wrong and the engraving is wrong.

    The dials and hands look ok tho👍🏽

    Dial and hands are imo not correct for an 81 either.

    Looks like a fairly modern RN auto faked up to look like an Ď81

    Sorry, I meant that the dials and hands looked like they were CWC
    As all the rest wasn’t… (poor attempt at humour)

    But I agree neither dial nor hands look like an ‘81.

    States in the description that the dial and hands have been changed and the original dial is included.

    Originally it would have the Ďfatí minute hand handset, and Iím pretty sure the dial would have the old logo and small T, which (even the original dial) it hasnít.

    Maybe. From CWCAddict - 1982 Ė Dial now has new CWC logo in an oval, larger circled T above the hands.

    Probably ripped off by some chancer and he's trying to recoup back what he originally paid for it.
