    No way to tell since the picture wont open.

    In any case, buy the seller not the watch. How is the feedback? How good are the pictures?

    The crystal has been replaced to an awful one. The dial is puzzling. I have never seen one like this.
    Another intersting thing is if you magnify the pics, and look on the second from top, the markers look nice and crisp in the Central field, but quite blurry on the outside fields.
    And no "Swiss Made" on the dial?

    I am not even close to a JLC expert... the fact that there are no bids on it and the starting bid is so low really made my antennae go up.


    Something doesn't seem right.. but I have no real basis to make that assumption.

    Leaning fake.

    Here's what appears to be a genuine JLC with no "swiss made" marking on the dial.. so I dunno.

    That dial has been repainted. Just look on the "Le Coultre" text. A joke!
    IMO black painted hands are wrong. All 3 hands should be the same colour.
    No JLC logo on crown???

    Thanks Janne.

    Here's another without "Swiss Made" on the dial.

    I asked the seller of the first watch if he could add a pic of the movement, the crown, and a full shot of the caseback.

    Yes, another repainted dial!!!

    As these watches were cased in the US, is that the reason for no "Swiss Made" text?

    Real or not, I would keep my $148 and save it for another watch, but that is just me
