    Picture What on Earth is this? (blurry auction photo!)

    Hi all,

    I've come across this watch in a local rural auction - it's so weird it's either a very bad fake job or it's very real... Before I travel an hour each way to have a look at it, I was wondering if anyone here has an opinion or has seen something similar? The auctioneer is typically cagey, won't say if he thinks it's real or not.

    Things to note:
    1. #10 is cut by the 9 o'clock subdial (although this may be an optical effect of the mobile phone camera, note how the minute hand also appears chopped)
    2. Subdials don't seem to be chronograph;
    • 6 o'clock subdial has 6, 12, 18, 24
    • 12 o'clock subdial appears to have 4, 8, & 12
    • 9 o'cock subdial appears to have 04, 08, 10?


    3. No numbers on the inner ring - almost every pilot watch I ever saw had numbers on inner ring
    4. IWC logo is very close to the #2. In all the Pilot watches online, the IWC logo is very fine and separated by a good bit

    thanks in advance for your opinions!!!

    A poor and ugly fake.

    Lol, usually I have no qualms deciding something is fake, but this was so weird I was half convincing myself that it was a model i just never saw before...
