1/ previously watchcoaustralia has been acting for a long time on the scene of swiss vintage spares
2/ the chrono bridge is unmarked but the cock bridge is engraved WOG
3/ mention of a swiss patent + 59217 is printed in place of normal + 217012

dial might be authentic; movement and hands clearly not.
