    How involved... repair question...

    I was presented locally with this watch at a decent price but the concern is that the date function does not work... it does keep time properly and function in that respect.

    Is this something that can "easily" be repair at minimal cost or is it something that can be more involved??

    Any input is greatly appreciated...thanks!!

    If sent to a service center, it will be serviced and repaired, cost may run 3 to 450 USD. Look for a local watchmaker.

    Re: How involved... repair question...

    need a better pic of the crystal back/movement but certainly doesnt look right to me at all - unfinished n rough n dont think ETA based autos have red teflon coated gear wheels copying Rolex?

    go online and look at a proper hi res photo of a Longines auto movement and compare

    Re: How involved... repair question...

    I actually did and wondered about that myself but I don't know enough about the brand for variations. I have noticed a run on fakes lately... mostly Rolex and Omega's... didn't think a Longines fake would show up in this part of the woods LOL!!

    Anyhoo... thanks again for the help!! Love this place!!

    Longines are the most popular up market brand in China - over Rolex/Omega etc
    Longines have cult status in China, the capital of fakes.

    Re: How involved... repair question...

    Agree with others that this looks very suspicious. I'll go out on a limb and call it fake. Here is why - number font width on dial is much thinner than standard, hand color is "too blue" as the real piece hands are a deeper blue, case shape at the lugs is completely wrong, and the ink for the "Longines" and "Automatic" print is too thin.

    All of this without seeing the movement or caseback.

    This is definitely a fake longines. The movement is not right it is a Chinese Rolex copy movement. You have been cheated
