This vintage Blancpain model is under 500 USD, is it legit?
So, I came across an auction and found this:
The seller does not seem to know whether it is original, or whether the parts are still original.
The movement looks like from AS 2063 family used by Blancpain for their early Fifty Fathoms but lacks of date complication (so, 2062?). This is the 25 jewels version.
All it says on the silver dial are "BLANCPAIN Since 1735" and "SWISS MADE" with thick font, with no other information regarding the model displayed.
I've tried to search this vintage model on Google but come with no similar results nor clue, even Villeret model still looks way different.
Here are the pics, for USD 500, will it worth it?
