    Thoughts on this vintage Endura chronograph

    I want to buy this watch as part of my weekly vintage chronograph splurge, but am somewhat concerned about seeing such a perfect dial as well as the fact that I have seen other Enduras with a more cursive logo, albeit 15-20 years older.

    I guess my questions are as follows...

    1) any idea of what movement is inside?

    2) any signs of fraud or Frankenwatch-Dom?

    3) any Idea as to the history of the company prior to being scooped up by swatch?

    4) any pics of your Enduras?

    As always your expert advice is much appreciated, especially in my pre-purchase debacle.

    Hi there,

    I doubt that the mint case, and the ruined movement left the factory together. And with the broken off friction spring for the minute counter this will likely not work properly. Consider that the manufacturer didn't apply the spring just for fun. Here an intakt movement fpr comparison:
