    Is this a fake?

    I’m new to watch buying on eBay and would extremely appreciate any advice. Just bought this watch and it says it’s from India so decided to ask you guys about it. Does anyone know if this is even a watch that was produced by citizen? The seller says it’s from 1970-1979. Any help is appreciated thanks.

    From what I can see, a blacksmith would do a better job making that movement.

    Alrighty thanks for the input. I’m not very well versed on what is a hood movement and what isn’t.

    What do you mean? Like you think it?s a fake? Or it just looks like a bad watch?

    The phrases “second hand watch” and “India” are usually guaranteed to bring a laugh. There are so,e truly terrible fake watches that are in India.

    In the case of your watch that movement looks looks like something I would have made as a 7th grade metal work project. It’s perhaps the worst looking movement I’ve ever seen.

    Has it been polished with sandpaper?

    2000 INR or less ? To me it looks like a tinkerer‘s work. Not necessarily fake but franken.
    Kind regards

    That's a poor picture of the movement. If it says either Citizen or Miyota then it may have actually come from Citizen. The movement looks really beat up - like it sat in the parts drawer of some watch assembler in India for quite a while.

    Here is an example of what a Citizen watch movement should look like.
