I was told this might be the place to ask this question as it's concering a supposedly vintage watch (repost from Chinese watches as I thought it was a chinese replica watch).
I've been looking at some quite handsome Jacot watches, the modern mushroom brand watch with Chinese movement, and then my eyes fell on the eBay item 180481322699. When I looked into some of the history of this watchmaker which indeed existed, born in 1864 and died in 1939 according to Clockwatchers they had this info: In 1911, the company used the trademark Primax on their watches, parts and packaging. From about 1920 the company traded as Terrasse Watch Co.
So if this clock on eBay is from 1910 (as almost all this sellers watches is and all still looks brand spanking new too) this is inconsistent with that information as he didn't trade under the name Terrasse until much later.
If you look closely on the pictures you can see the poor quality of the gold finish, so most probably not genuine gold either.
Do you agree with my assessment this is a replica from China or Russia or do you believe I'm wrong?
Still a nice looker but most of this guys watches that is supposedly a vintage watch goes for too high a price in my mind, I don't mind replicas but I don't want to pay for something like if it was the real vintage watch.
The seller have some supposedly Vacheron Constantin and old Omegas for sale too which look very alike, same vintage and in the same "super condition" according to the seller. Incredible that this seller has had the good fortune to find this many watches in the same good condition when most watches from the 60ies and 70ies and later etc are much more worn in general, isn't it.
