Just put a fair downpayment on a FL Bathy 50, not cheap, I don't hink I'm getting a great deal, but that's not the point. I just want to make sure the watch is authentic. What should I look for, or where can I look to find some information on this watch. Also, should I finish the deal at the local watch repair shop so I can have the timing checked, and can they test it for water resistance? It is not crucial, but I would like to know. As for the timing, essentially I only ask that it keep good time for a day as I will not be wearing it day in/day out. What are the parameters that I should expect to hear? Any advice would be helpful. Thank you

I find it hard to believe anyone expecting to make decent money from their criminal endeavors would copy Bathy watches. But I have been surprised many a time.

One common characteristic of fakes is a lack of quality. Look close and think about the quality of what you see. Use a loupe. Compare with known good, if possible.
