  1. Omega Fake Busters
    Watchfinder has a video on youtube comparing a real to fake seamaster new edition. Omega Seamaster Diver 300M 210.30.42.20.06.001 It is scary how real the fake looks. It makes one wary of buying off ebay or foreign sites. I would have been fooled...

    Sorry if this is a duplicate - I thought I just posted this new thread, but I can't find it anywhere including a subscription to it on my profile. Sorry if I'm just being dumb, mods! So, I just picked up an SRPC07 off Amazon since the price dropped to $210. Seller was Amazon themselves, not...
  3. Pens & Writing instruments
    Hi everyone. Mostly I delve into the watch side of the house. I have quite a few fountain pens, and just recently went to acquire an S.T. Dupont ballpoint pen for my wife. After checking online for assistance in determining if my S.T. Dupont pen is real, I couldn't come to any conclusions on my...
  4. Fake G-Shock Report
    "Massive Discount on Men's Casio G-Shock GD-400 watch" I thought I nailed myself a great deal when I bought a GD400 on a popular portal in India, and the seller had claimed it was a clearance sale. The watch was listed at an equivalent of $50 and I double-checked the seller's photos to satisfy...
  5. Omega Fake Busters
    Hi, There is an Omega Seamaster from the 70's being sold for a 'negotiable' £632 ($990) by Chrono24 on behalf of a premium trusted seller, which he has been since 2014. Does this piece of information validate the watch? or could Chrono24 themselves sell a counterfeit item, or am I totally...
  6. Chinese Mechanical watches
    Hi ya'll, I just bought a clone 2824-2 off ebay and the listing didn't say which brand so I pm'd the member to find out which one it was, they told me it was a Seagull, so yesterday I get my movement and to my surprise it actually had the ETA shield, the letters inside are weak but they're...
  7. Breitling Fake Busters
    Hey all, I picked this guy up at the thrift store for a few bucks. It looked pretty good and I am not an expert in differentiating fakes and genuine pieces. It is in pretty rough shape. The bezel is loose and it looks a little banged up, but it runs with almost a sweeping motion and keeps...

    Hello my first post here, So I purchased a Molnija pocket watch on Ebay several years ago, and only began recently doubting its legitimacy. I was wondering if anyone here could help tell me if it's real or not and if it is, what time period was it approximately made in. All the other 3602...

    Hi, I'm very new to watches and have just come into possession of this supposedly Audemars Piguet Royal Oak. I'm no expert, but initially think it's perhaps a fake as the screws aren't nicely lined up. If anyone knows if it looks like a fake I'd be greatful for a few pointers, or if anyone can...

    Hi; I am new to this forum and watch collecting in general though I have an appreciation for it since I have worn my great uncle's Hamilton Thinline for the last 25 years. (I only got involved recently since the mainspring finally broke and I started looking and then collecting) Anyhow -...
  11. Rolex & Tudor
    Hello everybody! I posted this in another section and nobody was responding so I thought I should list it in this section, which seems more accurate. I hope it's not considered poor etiquette to "repost" the same thing in another section. I'm kind of new to this and would genuinely just like...

    Is this a counterfeit? Looks like second hand is wrong, tick marks seem off, and the movement is unmarked..plus the design on the back doesn't look like the IWC Mark XV's that I've seen. IWC Schaffenhausen Watch | eBay Seller claims it's been authenticated but refuses to provide information as...
  13. Casio G-Shock
    In Roosevelt field mall today and see a casio display. I check out a few riseman and a frogman which all seemed to be authentic. After walking away bc of his high prices and reluctance to budge I see on the other side of the case was a load of fake pro treks a GDF-100 and a few 7900's (I think)...

    I know this Bulova Marine Star 98B013 is a simple one, but I would like to know if someone can tell whether it is a fake or a real one. I've bought it on ebay for $130 from a guy who has a pawn store. Does anyone know if it is a counterfeit? I've never seen plastic parts inside a Bulova before...

  17. Tissot
    Hello - I found this website after buying a counterfeit "100% genuine" Tissot PRS200 in September. I wanted a new watch and looked at loads on websites and eventually settled on an older style Tissot PRS200 (with the thicker bezel). Prices in New Zealand shops were around NZD700 - 1000 so I...

  20. Tissot
    I got my watch from Duty3Canada, an Amazon.ca dealer for $325 (shipped). For that price, I expected it to be real. WRONG! I took it to all three authorized dealers we have here in town. The first one took one look at the watch and the box and said "It's real" and didn't even want to open it up...
