As usual, a thread on here re-ignites my interest, and there I go...
There seems to be quite a lot of "art deco" style watches on eBay in seemingly good condition.
Some of them are more or less transparent - dial replaced during "service", new crystal, etc. I'm just wondering how much of a minefield this is, and how many of them are cobbled together from different parts.
Case in point:
No movement or caseback pics so far, and not likely to happen. Seller sounds genuine, but well, that's not unfortunately an indicator (not a lot of references to watches, just seems to be a normal long-time eBay user), and he might genuinely not have more info.
Supposedly: silver case, porcelain dial, everything original save the crystal and strap.
I'm sure it's polished and all, but the carving detail is almost suspiciously sharp?
The price is less than I would expect, though the size is smallish (31 x 35mm, which for a cushion case should actually be wearable for my small wrist).
