Hello,
My name isCustomerand I would love to help.
Please use the Add Files feature to add pictures of the watch, dial, inner case (where it should show a gold assay mark) and the movement.
The serial number on a watch is on the movement (guts) and not on the case. It is normal for the case and movement to be made by different makers. Thank you!
