    Fake Ulysse Nardin. But movement?

    Hello everyone! I'm a watch neophyte, new to this forum and this is my first post. So please bear with me if I sound ignorant, because I am.

    I found this "Ulysse Nardin" watch in my late father-in-law's estate. I don't know when or where he acquired it. Having never heard of Ulysse Nardin I searched the internet and quickly realized it is a fake. Beyond the poor condition of the face, the lettering is crude. The back is . . . . ? I don't know why this back would be used if one were trying to fake a UN. I'm curious about the movement, though. To the untrained eye it looks like a quality piece and it keeps perfect time. I have no intention of trying to sell it and I might even wear it occasionally. But I would like an idea of its history.

    That replica is probably pretty old, for a replica I mean so a few years, not a great one but could pass to a random as a genuine from a quick glance, and about the movement, it looks like an Asian 6498 17 jewel handwinding movement. Can be had for around 50$.

    A few thoughts from a non-expert:

    1. probably a recased movement
    2. probably a UN movement that is quality enough to allow for decent regulation
    3. the green on the case could mean brass case, and the plating has worn through where the caseback met
    4. does the dial actually fit, or is there a gap from dial to case
    5. movement looks small for the case, though this doesn't prove anything
    6. a stainless back on a case usually indicates plating, in some form
    7. could be that the dial is original to the movement but was redialed, poorly.
