    Is this Blancpain authentic. HELP PLEASE.

    Good evening.
    I have been looking for an affordable Blancpain and was offered a watch that was in my price range. I am not sure if it is authentic and was
    wondering if someone could maybe have a look at the pictures and advise. I would really appreciate it as I am going to get it on Tuesday.

    Not an expert, but shouldn't it have a second hand somewhere? I think it usually has a sub second over the moon phase on the ones I've seen before.

    This is a Blancpain 6553, and it looks plausible, but the crown appears to have been replaced, and the gold hallmarks are worn out or missing. It would be easier to authenticate if you have a photo of the movement.

    Be carefull! For older watches there is some repair/ cleaning to do. And that`s not cheap, especially for a more complicated model.

    My dad did a cleanup on his AP Perputual Calender and that was 1000euros. And his watch was in good condition.

    Some did, some didn't. The 6263-362-55b does, the 6595-1141-55 (like this one) did not.
