Tsk Tsk. I did try to tell them but have had zilch response, so time to name & shame. Lot 144 on their auction on 26th March.

"A Seiko gentleman's Pepsi-bezel Pogue 6139-6002 wristwatch c.1970, automatic, 17 jewel lever chronograph movement, case no 452674, yellow sunburst dial, chrome and luminous batons and hands, red centre sweep seconds hand, subsidiary 30 minute hand, day and date aperture, on original Seiko bracelet"



From what I can see:
  • Fake dial
  • Fake bezel
  • Fake chapter-ring
  • Fake Hands
  • Fake case-back
I bet it's on an aftermarket bracelet too, and who knows what kind of state the movement is in. Wouldn't surprise me if the chapter ring doesn't turn as the crown and stem are probably aftermarket too. Assuming it doesn't have some quartz thing inside ;-)

On Morphet's own site, the estimate is £500-600, which would mean £160 going to them if sold at the high end.

The fakes are appearing everywhere, even on Yahoo.jp
They are getting good money too. A lot of buyers either don't know or don't care that their treasured watch they paid a lot of money for has very little real value and never will have.

Auction houses are in the business of selling stuff - caveat emptor.

Plus of course many buyers will be ignorant of such anomalies unfortunately.
