Mr Vincent is assembling watches again.
The Elgin has no numbers that make sense. Nice looker though.

The case around the crown looks a little different than the three I have. The shape of the bezel appears to have a different profile than mine. Just my thoughts.

...well, except for the case, crystal, bezel, hands and probably dial.

is spelled ARR not APR. And, I see no serial number.

Hands and dial are wrong. Bezel insert looks suspect.

I'd like to see the movement!

Totally fake. Bezel is wrong, but I won't say why in a public forum because I don't want the guy to be able to use this place as a way to QA check his work. Why would someone expend that much effort on making fakes? Is it really that profitable?

I believe that it's "talk like a pirate" month.

Well said... A case with a typo on it!!! The bezel is totally wrong, all three hands are wrong, the crown is wrong. I'd be afraid to see the movement in there. I'm trying to find one thing that is right about it.

The reproduction strap looks okay.

The "Benrus" watch is being sold for US$299, so at the current exchange rate of 20490 Vietnamese Dong to the US$ that is VND 6,126,510.

After recent pay rises minimum salaries for unskilled and manual laborers working in foreign owned factories increased to US$45 to US$55 (VND 922,050 to VND 1,126,590) monthly in urban Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

It is worth the effort because the sale of one watch is equal to six months salary for an unskilled worker. If you look at how many watches this bloke has sold it's not hard to see he is on a nice little earner.
