    To me, from the original time a saw it, watch looked a fake.
    I was surprised Roland thought it genuine.
    I think rotor is not original, nor other parts of movement, at best this is a 'marriage' movement or maybe even a 'franken' made up of odd bits and pieces.
    Personally I would not buy it

    Hi Adam,

    Sorry for my humble English. I should better have written "both are indicators of authenticy" instead of "both indicate authenticy". Reads similar, but actually is different. After the pics I'm still uncertain whether the balance alloy is yellow or white. But finally I would not buy it either, not because the rotor was probably replaced, but more because I'd wait for a sample in better shape.

    Generally I would not resist to pay a brand premium if the according maker actually added individual features to a generic movement, and not only provided a nice finish. UN for instance equipped some movements with Breguet hairspring, which was else not available. But if I wanted to have this AS calibre with its excentric rotor in my collection, I't prefer a mint Mido for half the price of a ruined UN, because they added their precision regulator:
