Hey, a small question that has been bugging me, i'm sure someone here will know the answer. I've seen this enough times on ebay now to deem it a reasonably common occurrence. Sometimes on a watch movement or caseback, somewhere, somebody has clumsily scrawled the name of the watch brand, in such a poor fashion it is abundantly clear that it was not done in the factory. Sometimes the brand does not even match the brand on the dial. I've seen it enough times now to realise that it must have been a practice to do this a long time ago. But what i can't work out is why???
Here is a link to show what i'm talking about, see the case back and the chrono bridge.
