I am new to the forum and pretty new to watch collecting. I have a Wakmann triple calendar chronograph which I love. it has a black dial with white registers. I have been wanting a panda with either a silver or white dial. My dream chrono would be a Breitling Top Tim 810....but can't afford one of those anytime soon.
I bid on this particular watch and didn't win, but was offered a second chance by the seller since top bidder did not pay. It has the panda dial that I'm looking for but have never seen a Wakmann like this before. Any input would be appreciated, as to whether it looks original or not. Any red flags seen. I did notice the metal is thicker than most around the crystal...could it have a bezel at one time? also it does not say "Swiss Made" like my other Wakmann. The seller said it was from his late fathers collection. He does not know how to open the back to see the movement. It starts but does not stay running.
....oh and it is about $1000.00
I would appreciate any opinions.
