    Default Adolf Hitler Pocket Watch, fake or not?

    This pocket watch is for sale on a Norwegian auction site: - Adolf Hitler Lommeur / Gi bud

    It is a pocket watch with a picture of Hitler in it, and i am quite sure it is a Russian Post-War copy, this is what the seller wrote:

    "We have been told there were only made about 1000 examples of this watch and that this is a pocket watch that was awarded to Adolf Hitlers officers(After ww2?).
    It was bought at an antique shop in Finlan. We can't find any examples online and we are looking at auction sites around the world for this pocket watch."

    I contacted the seller earlier today and said it was a Russian copy(Look at the last picture, i am pretty sure there is some Russian writing on the bottom). And told him to delete the ad as soon as possible or i would report him for scam, he has not done so yet. And 1 quick search on google for "Adolf Hitler pocket watch fake", this shows up: German pocket watch identification. - National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors Message Board .

    But anybody can make a mistake, but i am 99% sure it is a fake, but i would just like your opinions before i report him.

    That is one cheap and nasty post war russian watch."We have been told there were only made about 1000 examples of this watch and that this is a pocket watch that was awarded to Adolf Hitlers officers(After ww2?).
    Yeah right, add another "0000"'s to that. They used to sell in East Berlin markets for about 3-4 quid in the '80's, sans Adolf of course.
