    Eberhard vintage chronograph help needed plz

    Hi there ,i just stumbled up on this Eberhard watch.. I love vintage chronograph watches but ain't to good at Eberhard watch brand.
    My question is if some one can help me out and see if this watch is the real deal. I have seen plenty with almost the same dial , but the Eberhard text is in different places and fonts on many dials. And other Eberhard watches with this type of scale in dial are all common with the text "Tele metre" somewhere. Often in the top center of the dial.
    This one has not that text labeled anywhere.
    Here are some pics !

    There is an Eberhard expert here and he'll be along soon, I'm certain. But it's important to see the movement, so a picture of that is essential. And it's really important to see the inside of the case - the back looks very generic. The dial doesn't seen correct to me (especially as someone has rubbed off part of the 'snail trail' to fit in the brand name), but as I say, I'm sure that Sdasurrey (who's seen more Eberhards than most of us have seen naked ladies) will be able to offer an expert opinion and advice.

    Ok tnx for the input. I can not get picture of the movement, I have not bought the watch yet. So if I buy it i can get pictures. But in that case it can be to late with an redial and wrong movement ...
    Tnx for the help, and I will try to get the seller to pop up the back case

    Eberhard vintage chronograph help needed plz

    Thanks Habitant .....But I'm not an expert just an Eberhard collector - a number of issues have been raised already by yourself and others - certainly the dial signature is completely wrong.

    I look at lots of Eberhard chronos - because that's what i collect - I'm not sure i have ever seen this much of a fake - that satisfies ZERO requirements for being real ! IMHO - SDA
