    Help with possible franken Rado voyager

    Hi i recently picked up this 'rado voyager' from ebay, it is meant to be from the mid 70's however upon receiving it a few alarm bells started ringing. There appears to be no serial number, the case back is not signed and it looks a bit shoddy. Could someone let me know if i have received a fake?

    You have to follow rule number 9, which states:

    No discussions or pictures of replica watches, or links to replica watch sites unless previously approved by a Moderator or site Administrators. In general, any posts that involve the discussion, encouragement, or solicitation of any kind of illegal activities, whether watch-related or not, is strictly prohibited.

    If you have your doubts, then send the watch back.

    Will the eBay seller accept a return?

    What country did it come from?
    Post a dial side picture.
    The case back looks dodgy to me.

    By dial side picture what do you mean?

    Alright chap, no need to throw the rule book! Just after some helpful advice from people who know.

    A picture of the dial. Stamping of Rado name on the winding rotor does not look right.

    not sure about a fake, but possibly a franken,

    the back, as JohnMS mentioned, does look a bit off, so does the movement

    dial = face of the watch

    coming from certain countries is almost a dead giveaway it's at best a franken, but this can be true to any countries.
