What do you think? Bezel font of numbers "1" are off. And a few other things. Very bad condition.

no, it's not, roff... or if it was, it's back!

yes, it's in poor shape, but the font (and the rest) looks perfectly OK to me!

Look at the digits "1" on the bezel: They've got the so called "flagpole-1". Compare with the gen and you will notice the difference. And not to forget the poor lume application on the small dots around the dial.

Gen:

no, it's still there but it looks like it's only available for europe and may not be visible to some other parts of the world...

i beg to differ...

the pictures are not great but:

1) i can't see any flag pole issue,

2) i also can't see any "poor lume application on the small dots around the dial".

oh, and, i'm not comparing to your "gen" picture but to my two (genuine, trust me!) avenger watches.

cheers,
pg

Look at the small 3-o'clock marker and its surrounding. It's sloppy and poor applied. And the black surrounding does not fully rund around the lume. The others are not much better.
And if there a B13/7750 should be inside I'm missing the locking ring of the rotor bearing. And where is the bearing?
Flagpole is obvious imo.

back home and, on a computer screen, with the zooming, you're obviously right, especially the 3 o'clock lume!

well spotted...
