Thoughts on 1655 needed
 
Hey guys,

Been on the hunt for a 1655 now for a few weeks and a local store to me in LA has just got one in. Would love some advice and feedback on it and if it's a decent deal or if I should keep on searching.

It's the first 1655 on "Wannabuyawatch". I can't link it as I only have 3 posts.

Thanks!

Dial is fake, case probably fake also. Looks way to new for a 49 year old watch.
Just lookup a decent picture of a 1655 mk 1 dial on the internet and see all the differences.
Also the hands are wrong for a mk1, the bezel is terrible looks like a toddler painted the numbers on it.

As soon as I saw it, I was wondering what the hell was wrong with the bezel.

As noted, this 1655 is a mess and questionable at best. However, they will throw in a travel pouch, "a $55 value!"

For $22,500, I'd rather buy a new VW Jetta, which is actually less money.

Thanks for the heads up
