    Ulysses Nardin, Chronograph - Is this an authentic dial?

    My initial reaction was no - but I've been wrong more times than right.

    I think, that is fake, where is buttons for chronographs, have scale but the buttons missing.
    I'm not expert !

    The watch would be what is called a "mono pusher" chronograph. If you look at the crown, you'll see an inner button that can be depressed and start the chrono, stop it, and reset it.

    The pic isn't good enough for a sure response, but this dial looks refinished

    I don't know anything about UN. But this article about a similar V & C A Look At An Obscure Vacheron Mono-Pusher Chronograph From 1930 And The Fake One Selling On eBay Today and a fake version of it shows what a minefield this is.

    Maybe someone with great knowledge will be able to say.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    Not sure Ulyesses Nardin did make a centre pusher (monopusher) in a cushion shape case. Vacheron did.

    To me the dial is reworked, that means even if it is a UN the dial has been redone.
    I would want to see the movement before passing a final decision, but I am leaning (because of case) to a fake.
    That said ANY crown based mono-pusher is a FANTASTIC piece - fake or not!

    Let us see the movement and inside back case

    +1. That was my first thought when seeing the original post: where's the movement picture?!
