I know nothing about Hermès watches or how their logos may have changed, but the script without the grave accent looks suspicious...

True.. it looks like the face inst original, I would steer clear

Dial : was recently refinished condition is very good +++, see pictures please they are accurate.

Maybe ask the seller about this. It looks new, not refurbished.

If you like that look, I'm pretty sure I've seen similar vintage Lemania and Heur watches.

If you are not in it only for the label, look at other Landeron-powered and/or Chronographe Suisse-labeled pieces.

Bad photo, but a beautiful day.  Definitely need the new iPhone 5 for better photos on the go.

I wish it wasn't the equipment... I'm still using the old iPhone 3G (with crappy camera).  I've been holding out for the iPhone5.  Thank goodness they will be available soon!

 

Here's a better photo from a real camera.
