    I have my doubts. It shares the Squale case, but if it is a Bund Blancpain prototype seems odd.

    Notice how they don't show a photo of the case back were you would see issue marks or the manufacture name who can make out the logo on the dial. See with the manufacture name you mite do a search and find more civilian ones and put that fake story to rest. Just another way with a fake story so squeeze more money out of bidders. Since it's civilian it's a 616 pound or 800 US is what it's worth love there high estimate see how the price jumps with a fake story.

    its a made up story for sure, we would know with our collective knowledge about these watches, plus it would be marked if it's a German prototype and if it were marked there would be an image for sure.

    I didn't see this watch on Ebay but I did see it on a notification from ""the salesroom.com" a while ago - just can not remember which auction it was in.

    Here's a photo on Pinterest. If you click it, it will take you to the original ebay listing from a few years ago.

    Sorry, I have scripts disabled so I'm able to avoid that step ;-) Here is a link to the ebay auction:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-VINTAGE...item2a533ce19c

    But the images have been removed. The only remaining image is the one that Pinterest archived (you can see it on the left of your screenshot). When you click that one...it gives you a larger view.
