    Cheeky...

    I noticed something interesting when reading this thread https://forums.watchuseek.com/showthread.php?t=399060

    Both are contemporary 60s watches.

    The Hafis (this one is mine, as is the fruit ) is a good solid Swiss brand that sold very well here in NZ, with a 21 jewel ETA 2472 movement and a 20 micron rose gold bezel. The Polerouter (this one is on ebay) needs no introduction...

    Well spotted! Your Hafis is very nice - and remarkably Polerouter like. I suspect that the franken is actually a Polerouter case and dial, with a replaced movement. Its probably a very usable watch.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    Oops, I have misled you here with the order of the photos... hopefully a bit clearer now.

    That movement is from my Hafis.

    The ebay watch has the proper micro-rotor movement, I am pretty sure it isn't a franken. There are two up on ebay in this black dial style at the moment.

    Yes, I am rather fond of this Hafis, although I didn't know about polerouters until yesterday
