Fake dial... what about the movement?

I purchased the watch, learned that the dial is fake and have a chance to return it. On the other side I wonder whether the movement is original and if so the original dial can be found or not. Looking forward to expert comments.

I don't see VC signature on the movement

I don't think VC used that font on their numbering. It looks like the bridges are relatively new. Perhaps they are copies of the original bridges. If so its not a bad job. I think there is anglage on the bridges. But you are right. There should be the VC logo and name on one of the bridges. Joseph

When I spoke with one of the VC experts at VC-Geneve I asked the VC logo question to him. He told that VC logo is `not a must` for a real VC. I can send his contacts where necessary. Another question is; I did not see any VC pocket watch on the internet that has only a small seconds dial at 9. Generally if it has only a small seconds dial it exists at 6.

The crown has been rotated to 3 which means the sub seconds is at 9. The movement in your watch is not a VC

Sorry but I did not understand what makes the movement `not original`
the movement is not signed
