Fake Kriegsmarine and Kaiserliche Marine Clocks At The War & Peace Revival
With the War and Peace Revival about to start in the UK, now is a good time to warn you of the dangers of buying Kriegsmarine and Kaiserliche Marine Clocks on sale there.
The UK’s most active faker of these clocks will be there as usual displaying a number of clocks which will enable you to recognise him in the stalls towards the low barrier.
He sells clocks which range from fake dials on de-Nazified clocks, to clocks which are complete fakes, including the cases. These are well executed fakes designed to deceive and defraud.
All numbers should match the serial number on the back of the case, including the movement. If someone tells you the movements get changed, he’s not telling you the truth
Know your eagles, here is one of his fakes.
Never pay cash. If he won’t take a card, give you his contact details, tells you he doesn’t have a land line telephone or a computer, walk away.
If you decide to buy a clock at the show, buy it from a dealer you know or one who will take a card so you have some security. Even other dealers at the show may have been taken in by his clocks which also appear on eBay and other websites.
Tell your friends!
