I don't know to which extend this has been discussed here before, but a quick search didn't really show any results.
Lately I have come across a lot of re-cased vintage pocket watches on ebay. Most of these vendors are in eastern Europe and some in Germany. Some of them look poorly done while others actually look decent. Especially if you are in the market for a watch with a larger diameter (47mm to 48mm). Many use movements from vintage Omegas, A. Lange, etc.
Obviously these watches are not "real", because they have been modified beyond their initial intention.
Was just wondering what the general consensus is about these "custom" watches.
I didn't include any links to live ebay auctions since I believe that this is not allowed in this forum.
