rebr Wrote:Dear Michael Friedberg, thank you for your analysis which to me sounds like a solid conclusion to this 'quest'. Obviously to me personally it is a big disappointment to get to know the truth about this 'watch'. Aesthetically it is still as appealling as it was to me, but I wouldn't dare to call it an Ingenieur anymore. But well, if I would not have liked to know then I should not have started asking. I will reconsider what to do. The Ebay seller from Singen (which is very close to Schaffhausen I found out this week) sold it as an 'Ingenieur' which I guess would mean that my wife could try to get the money she paid for it returned to her, now that we know that the only parts of it which might be from an Ingenieur could be the hands & the dial. I don't think there's any use anymore in sending it to Schaffhausen, or it would be to get a report which states that the watch is indeed a marriage/non-ingenieur, which could make it easier to speak to the seller.Remco
