So did you grab the one on eBay? Good grab and enjoy
Thank you Sir for the welcome.Welcome back to WatchUSeek Hikmet.
I hope this is not the case but if anyone would know it would be the co-owner of Solebox, Mr. Hikmet Sugoer.
Is your serial number 1020.0028? Another tell is if it has an ETA 2836 clone movement.
If you do a Google search using "Solebox replica" as your search criteria you'll find far more sites selling these fakes than the number of watches (10) that were built by Sinn. It's really quite sickening.sheesh, sure looks legit to me... bummer, mdhorner17, that really sucks... I'm also shocked that someone would bother to knock these off... but whomever did it did one heck of a job... again, sure looks like the real deal to me... would love to see comparos of the real vs fake...
hope u get it all straightened out...
A side by side picture would also let the conterfeitters know where they are going wrong though.yes some side by sides would be good to see all of us legit Sinn shoppers
The big replica factories already have the originals in hand, and tear them down, then replicate them part by part. In fact many parts are interchangeable with originals. Its big business, and they take it seriously. Then they put the original back together and sell it off on a forum or auction site. The standard U1 replica is one of the most indistinguishable replicas out there, almost impossible to tell from real. I was amazed when I saw it in person and compared it to my genuine U1. VERY scary. I use one of the major replica sites as a reference tool when i'm buying genuine watches off the forums, just to check serial numbers and details, to make sure i'm not the next victim.A side by side picture would also let the conterfeitters know where they are going wrong though.
