Sorry to drag us back to the mundane world, but fraudsters never rest!  This offering presents a vintage V&C with original box and papers...surely the holy grail.  A brief comparison of the case and reference numbers listed on the papers vs those on the case back shows the difference:

As always, I offered this information to the seller but no response and no change to the listing.
I just wonder if these sellers even check the papers!

When mistakes become fraud...

In my mind, what turns a mistake into fraud is whether the seller profits from the error.  This listing placed great emphasis on the complete package of watch and papers, so claims of ignorance are just not acceptable.  FWIW, the seller recently responded that it was a mistake BUT will not correct the listing!  It is the achilles heel of the vintage V&C marketplace that these shady dealers are not shunned out of business
