    Probably very difficult. US import codes, if they have any. Clearly marked movements with correct signatures would be the second option. Other than that, it's down to knowing the exact model and/or being exceedingly careful. Watch out for obvious signs of frankenizing (e.g. movement holder screws are in a different place in relation to - older- marks on the case left by such screws). Other than that, just hope for the best.....

    This is what I was trying to say, just avoid anything obviously wrong and then make your decision, sometimes life's a gamble.

    Does that bezel really screw on? I would love to know, and of so own that watch.
    DUNHILL pieces are very sought after.

    Thanks for posting them, booth lovely pieces
    Looks like a Taubert case to me so I would be very surprised if it had a screw down crown.

    Some Taubert cases screw in from the front and some from the back.

    Yes.
    I misread your first mail, I thought it read that Taubert had screw down crowns, hence my questioning it. As I know only backs were screwed down.
    Sorry my miss reading

    Sorry, I should have actually verified it screwed from the front but as mentioned, I didn't see anyway to get in the back and the vendor kind of started to show me how it worked, by unscrewing the bezel but I told him not to worry because I most likely wasn't going to buy it (£500) - I'll do a better check next time !

    But I'm pretty sure it unscrews through the front. Cheers, Scott

    Oh. Certainly unscrews from the front. Always check that this is ok and check inside. Sometimes the swing out hinges inside are damaged.
