Non Military watches 'dressed as Military'

Recommended Posts

You see it all the time on ebay, any wristlet style watch called a 'Trench Watch', usually its a ladies watch too.

Civilian versions of a watch used by the military listed as 'Military Watches' or my favorite 'WWII Era watch'.

Am I being too critical on this watch, is it genuine and maybe someone just touched up the writing stamped on the back of the case freehand due to heavy wear,or does it look like its been added to a civilian version of this watch so it sells for more?

any wrist watch with a battery,  can not be a trench or vintage military watch.  no mater what e bay says.  they look nice,  may run well, but not worth anything.  vin
