    I HAVE SOME DOUBTS REGARDING THE AUTHENTICITY OF THIS POCKET WATCH
    1)The name longines appears to be hand written
    2)There is no serial number on the back
    3)There is a engraving saying grand prix 1889 which i havent seen on any other models
    Kindly help verify if it is a fake or real cause without the serial number i dont think its possible to date this ..i appreciate any help ..thanks

    Hi and welcome
    Hands may be replacement but the rest looks original to me.
    You can not rework (repaint) an enamel dial, so the name lettering is original.

    The movement is original Longines, it is related to this one here:

    bidfun-db Archiv: Uhrwerke: Longines 20.52

    I suspect that the serial number is under the dial.
