It's a long time since a fake 14K Constellation case has surfaced and this one is one of the most crude, rednecked examples I've yet to see.Powered by a cobbled together calibre 561 with parts of various hues, this is one of many examples of the Asian 'Slight of Horological Hand' industry.
Movements from old Seamasters and other lower shelf brands are removed and inserted into these poorly made cases. Most of them emanate from Vietnam and China.There are just too many things wrong with this case and fake dial to itemise in this post. But, for those who are interested, check out my essay about fake gold cases and down load this essay on dials and then make some comparisons.
Ebay seller lolo-dealer claims that the case condition is "(F)rom very good to mint". Well you got that right lolo-dealer as its not long out of a cheap casting factory! Lolo-dealer goes on to proclaim that the case is "(S)howing all the stars of the observatory". Yep, so it does, but it just has the wrong obervatory roof, and the stars, well, they aint configured correctly for a solid gold Constellation.
I don't know if lolo-dealer knows s/he's selling a dud, but if s/he does then the name lolo-dealer is apt, because you can't get much lower that trying to flog a fake gold watch to some poor unsuspecting neophyte, can you?Ive reported this as a fake, so let's see what happens.
