    Camy watch

    So a while ago i bought a camy watch and i posted here.. some of you made a couple of remarks about the dial. As seen in picture teh 6 is not perpendicular on the watch.. and the dot above the 12 is not in the middle.. but above 2. and it looks like this.

    after some research I found this which has the same marks.. so now i am confused.. is this how it suppose to be? is a a fake? sorry about the pic i found it like this but is visible enough to distinguish the similarities

    This is the one with the old Poljot movement right?

    The best way to determine whether the dial and movement is genuine is to take out the movement and take off dial. If the dial has dial feet and it corresponds with the movement then there's a good chance the dial and movement is paired up correctly. However if there's no dial feet, or if the dial is glued onto the movement then it's most likely franken.

    I noticed there's no "swiss made" on the dial, perhaps Camy was purchased out of Switzerland during of after the quartz crisis? In Beijing, I've purchased ETA and FHF powered Camys, and in the US I've come across AS powered Camys. Only in the UK I've observed poljot Camy. Could be a geographical thing.
