    Can I buy this Favre Leuba Sea King?

    Hi Guys,

    Pls have a look at this Favre Leuba Sea King FAVRE-LEUBA GENEVE SEA KING SWISS HAND WOUND NOS NEW OLD STOCK VINTAGE WATCH | eBay

    It is mentioned "new" old stock.
    It goes for 152$.
    The watch looks a bit scuffed up though.
    Is it a good deal?

    While India is known for refinished dials, it is possible that the seller is being honest when he says that the dial on that one is original. Having said that, he also claims NOS, yet shows no photos of the case back or movement, which is very suspicious. Without such photos, it would be foolish to buy.

    Regards,

    New old stock. Contact the seller and ask for case back and movement pics, then decide if you still want it.
