    Hi all,

    Does this look genuine?

    I don't see any obvious problems based on those photos. However, you are likely to get some push-back for using the word "Calatrava" outside the context of PP.

    :) I guess it shouldn't really be described as such. It's how it's being advertised.

    My trust in sellers shrinks remarkably, if they offer things like Longines Calatrava or Toyota Silver Ghost.

    Well said.

    To me, sellers pulling off the Caltrava Houdini are ones to be avoided.

    Calatrava Houdini:
    a magic trick - call any time-only watch a Calatrava, and blag ten times what it's really worth.

    It's just a time-only Longines with a rather dirty dial.

    There is no such thing as a Longines Calatrava!!! Nor is there a Zenith Calatrava, an Omega Calatrava, or a Tissot Calatrava. No. Just, no. If it isn't a Patek, it isn't a Calatrava.
