    It's all quite bizarre ..the seller however is very heavily invested in his story/theory.

    More so in his "back history" in the ebay listing. It's like a Dan Brown book, only more exciting...
    Half a mil starting bid, heavily invested in weapons-grade narcotics if you ask me.

    The balance in that watch certainly doesn't look mid-19th.C.

    That's probably why it was and might still be, "Top Secret"

    I believe he found this watch as a result of a Wikileaks release.

    ...NAWCC forum has deleted the thread, and the OP has strangely changed his name from "Antiktak" to...(cough)..."masterwatchmaker"...

    It's a key wind if you notice when you look through the photo at the hole's were the winding key goes they don't line up I guess the Ukrainian did not pay attention when he welded the lugs on and then put the movement back in were it would look right on the wrist. The seller a BIG bamboozler a flimflam man .
