V&C policy toward marriage watches


Sorry if this was discussed already, but I wasn't able to find this info so far.

I'm selling different stuff on eBay. One man offered me to sell so called marriage watches on his behalf. As he explained, there is authentic movement of pocket watch inside of modern (non-authentic) wristwatch body with non-authendic dial.

So, is it allowed to sell such watches?

Is it allowed to mark dials with V&C name since movement is authentic? I've tried to sell such watch, and eBay removed this listing.

What is the main reason? V&C mark on non-V&C dial and body?

How to sell such watch? Should I name it like 'V&C movement in fake body' instead of 'V&C watch'? Or I can sell it only if dial and body nave no V&C names on them, so buyers aren't mislead?

And most important - is this legend is true? Or these 'marriage' watches are nothing more than 100% fakes actually, including their movement?

I'm attaching couple of pictures of the watch offered for sale. I'm not an expert in this field at all, so please explain me situation with such watches to help me make decision on selling them or stop dealing with such watches at all.



basically it is a watch using a VC

movement so it is not a VC. It really is up to you to decide how to sell it but you need to make it perfectly clear for your clients that the watch is in no way a VC and that it is a pocket Watch movement

Thanks for the reply, Alex.

What about the pictures? Is it possible to tell if this is genuine VC movement or fake?
