    Authentic ? Hermes 1960s World Timer

    Hello all, i bought this pocket watch for 350usd, but i am not sure if is real or fake. I saw that the same watches in stores cost a fortune. Suppose to be Hermes World Timer Luxor. Mesure 52mm and is gold plated. The movement is not engraved. Hope i made a good deal and is not fake. Kind regards.

    Looks like brass to me. (Edit: Maybe it is plated. Is there an indication on the case?)

    On the other hand, this one looks like it has the same movement as yours, and the seller is asking an obscene amount, $3k!

    My concern is that your movement is unsigned. Every other example I've found where the movement is shown, has a LUXOR signed movement. And the movements fit cleanly into the case. Other than that, I don't see any significant differences from the other examples. So I suspect that your movement may be re-cased.

    Is it me or does the dial actually read "Papis?"

    It looks like Paris to me. The text is just faded. Also, the font is not great, but I have nothing to compare it to since it's not really a watch brand.
