Franken or genuine? Help please.

Postby momosono » Fri Dec 23, 2016 3:40 pm

Today I bought this nice little alarm clock (45 x 45 mm) with unsigned dial for a very moderate amount of money.

On the back is a name though, actually there are two

Image

The inside of the back is signed as well

Image

and so is the movement

Image

and the little leather case has the corresponding logo on it

Everything seems to point in the direction of JLC, but...

The unsigned dial on this one is a single one instead of the usual double one of the Memovox.
And it only has an index instead of the triangle.

So what is it? A Franken? It wouldn't hurt since I didn't pay a lot.
Or is it genuine which would be nice, and in that case could anybody show me pics of genuine other ones like this one?
(I've seen one like this one and with a single dial on Ebay, but to me that doesn't mean it is genuine ;) )

Your help is much appreciated.

I think it is OK..the only thing is the dial isn't signed, but it might be the way Turler sold it. The rest looks good to me.
