Complete rip off then. No way a fake is worth $900.
Can you find any difference between these watches and the real ones?
They look equally bad as the real ones
Yes they are all fake
Pisses me off that they are making those grand date Aquaracers, I was hoping to buy one of those pre owned at some point...
This some scary shit.
@Snowy do you know if the old first gen Formula 1's are being faked? I have a friend who is a hopeless addict and he keeps buying mint condition ones, all from Japan.
I don't think there is any fake in the first generation Formula, but I think there are some Frankens made by combining parts.
And yet.... there are a suspiciously high number of blue chronographs appearing here there and everywhere all of a sudden...
Yes perfectly aged blue chronos. As if someone is manufacturing new watches that look aged. genius business model though right if it was true? Cheap to make quartz pieces that dont have to look perfect from factory cause they are so "old" and you sell them for 300-700 dollars. Good business, why would't someone do it.
Thinking about it, if I was a filthy criminal, manufacturing brand new older used watches looking old is a brilliant idea. Super tricky for people to expose, or even care, especially if its cheaper vintage watches around 300-2000 dollars.
Everything is better with photos, blue chronos be looking amazing

These are all fake??
No I dont know, hoping someone can tell. Like Rob said, it is just interesting this trend with old Formula 1's popping up for sale in very very good condition. These watches typically get very torn up when worn. Could just be a case of many people having old ones thats been left in a drawer for a long time.
What currency are these prices in? If it's Rupees then they are fake for sure.
This seller sells a lot of Tags on Ebay.
His Longines Hydroconquests are fake so the odds are that at least some of his Tags are.
No way these are fake
Please elaborate on what makes you 100% sure that this watch is genuine. I am not saying it is fake, just really want to learn more about these early F1's since there seem to be websites selling high quality fakes of these models for 150-200 dollars. Would be quite simple to buy a 200 dollar replika, bash it up a bit to look worn and sell it for 700.
I would point to the fact that the patina and yellowing of the lume on the dial looks absolutely spot on for how these watches would have aged. Very hard to fake that. Some may have had a replacement case or a bezel, who knows.
They look too good. I compared the F1 with the same reference my son has and everything, including the plastic band is spot on. The usage marks on the case are too random to be fake imo. Not saying all are genuine. The blue chronos I don't know a lot about. They too look really good so who knows. Faking blue 1000s is a hell of a lot easier than faking these funky F1s. Would simply be too costly I reckon.
