    Hi all, posted a thread on this piece a while back, but had some different/new questions for u all so I figured id make a new thread. I haven't bought this watch, but do like the look, but then again don't see it being worth the money spent if is more of a franken. What struck me as odd was that the bridge seems to be a different color than the rest. Also, anyone know what the "JXS" import code stands for. From my limited research this is not a Heuer import code. Thanks in advance all!

    Anyone know why this would be marked "Geneve"?

    It's a franken. Someone had an old no-name chrono and a Heuer chrono bridge, and is trying to turn maybe $100 worth of vintage watch into $1900.

    Figured as much, which is a shame, since it looks cool w its 28mm size. Thanks for the reply and info. Def saved being burned on this one.

    Run some eBay searches for vintage chronographs, there are plenty small ones out there for much much less than this.

    Thanks for the info. Havent checked ebay in a long while. I have a Lemania that's 14k yg in 30mm, cool little dress watch. I liked the idea of having an old Heuer, hence why I was initially drawn to this one. Its a shame its a franken. I wonder what it was originally.
