Turn-O-Graph 6202 opinion?

Hello, I’m considering the purchase of this 6101.

May I have your expert’s opinion on it? There is a little things which sounds strange to me: I never saw one where it had the Mercedes hand and the small lollipop seconds. It seems to me that usually when it has the Mercedes hand the lollipop is bigger and further down in the hand.

What do you think?

Also, do the dial, hands and bezel seem ok to you?

Thank you in advance
Zimen

Any shots of the case serial or reference? I have issue w the bezel insert - condition is suspect as is location of dots, font size and kerning. Second hand is wrong. Caked on lume is a bad sign too. Who is the seller? There are some variations over the years, so I’ll wait for a period expert to chime in. Serial matters in terms of dial. Am also not convinced second and hour hands are correct. A shot of dial outside of case would also help.

Thanks for your replies. No, the watch doesn’t come from any of those dealers. I guess, after reading your comments, that I shouldn’t buy any watch from them no? :)

I’m still trying to figure out if the mercedes-lollipop combination is original or not

I have no other pics of it.

Thank you,
Simon

the Mercedes hand in correct, looks just like my 53 TOG however my second hand is different. Lume looks a little suspicious/too good.
