Authenticity of a 6542 and 1675 dial ?

Hi folks.

Apologies in advance if a link to FleaBay is unacceptable. Option B would see me lose a morning fumbling around Imgur copying pics.

Two rare dials available in recent days from an Australian seller ... although his feedback shows he ships from Hong Kong. There's a 6542 (now sold) and a 1675 chapter ring (still available).

I think I like the 1675 dial and I have a use for it, but I'm not convinced about the 6542 dial. We are starting to see fakee 1675 chapter ring dials, heavily aged and alarmingly close to original specs, so I'm being extra careful.

A side note ... feedback for the seller is uninspiring. A long history with 4000+ buyers but feedback includes ... faulty phones ... used items repackaged as new - the pre-loaded pornography was the giveaway there wink.gif... and a recent come-back from a buyer just in recent weeks who dropped $18500 on a 6542 insert that turned out to be a fakee.

I'd welcome thoughts from the VRF crew. Any unequivocal tells that cast doubt on these dials ?

Thanks in advance, Paul
