Maybe he's right!

Oh dear, maybe I made a mistake?  I sent a fleabay merchant a warning that his piece was a fake and recommended he check it out further before selling.  Here is the reply:

"Right all the company markings on the dial , back plate, and into the quality jeweled mechanical gears. The positive acid test for 18K...those are all just an evil criminal conspiracy. You should check yourself out for insanity."

Here are the pictures...judge for yourself Maybe he's right!

Hi Dean, After seeing the movement, I never gave it another thought.  That would put both of us in the same boat, which by the way I consider esteemed company.  If by any chance this was authentic, then I think VC really needs to prepare training classes for its enthusiasts and collectors in order for us to learn how to spot the real thing. BR, Dan
That's what really bugs me....

I guess what I find so offensive about the fakes out there is why ANYONE would mistake them for the real deal; buyers or sellers. Absolutely agree with your idea Dan - there should be more educational materials available for the internet community on genuine VC spotting.  That would be an ideal role for The Lounge and required reading before any posts on grandad's old watch .
from dial to case, from the case to the movement , nothing's VC like..

how could sherlock be wrong !!! dean, your mistake is writing to the seller, perhaps. these unscrupulous sellers, or if he insists a genuine VC, a fool, are just trying to pull a fast one. i doubt he'd be able to trick anyone here.
Fleabay has really changed.

I miss the old days when private sellers outnumbered dealers.  It is becoming less a flea market and more of a junk store!
Oooooh, boy. The guy's got some nerve... (nt)

Where do you start? Some poor sucker is in for a surprise. I no longer check eBay for watches, too risky. Regards, Joseph

So far no one has touched that stinker .  You know, even the big auction houses have made mistakes, as Crott did recently by presenting a franken TBird for sale click here to see the post.
