    Vintage branded automatic movement + new case and hands + custom dial... What is this? Marriage?

    What can be elements of dial? Movement brand logo and name is possible? Omega, as sample...

    Thank you.

    Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.

    If you're looking for instructions to build a fake, look somewhere else.

    Oops, I just realized you said automatic movement, my post was referring to vintage and antique pocket watch movements being repurposed in new wrist watch cases, so ignore everything I said. I always do skip the important words when reading too fast!
    What you're be talking about sounds like getting into fake territory.

    Traditional marriage watch, with pocket movement, with custom dial (with brand logo and name) is not fake?

    Please, what is difference if in this marriage watch exist vintage pocket movement (this is also fake?) or vintage automatic movement?

    It's a bit difficult to understand what you are asking. Are you asking about a particular watch? If so, you should post photos. If you are asking a generic question, then I think the question is unclear.

    On this forum, I believe that a watch with an aftermarket dial with brand logo and name would be considered counterfeit and fake. Occasionally someone posts a question about a watch like that, and they are told that the watch is fake, and then the thread is locked.

    I hope, who read this posts, know what we know as marriage watch. In principle...

    Therefore, not can have custom dial with movement brand name and logo. OK. But can have custom dial, and, what can be elements of this custom dial?

    OK. For me, there is discus end. Marriage watch, traditional, with pocket movement or not traditional, with vintage automatic movement (not exist difference), can have custom dial, but not can have custom dial with movement brand name and logo. Thank you.

    putting a brand that you do not own on a custom dial is a fake

    They are fake, and all the ones I see are very ugly monstrosities.
