    Yes and no. Ir does act like a case and back plate and crystal. It in some way is supposed to be put into something.

    image.jpg Wait. I think I figured it out finally! I’m so dense lol. I’ve had a couple of these things, for years. Never made the connection. I think they are the metal cases that go into the plastic housing!

    James, did you start a youtube channel?



    No idea who this guy is or where he works but not very convincing if this is how preowned dealers verify authenticity

    The chrono is running... the dial looks good...the crystal is hard... the caseback should be sharp and deep but I cant really feel it cause of the plastic... it has a Ronda movement.. = genuine!

    As if a "good" fake cant have Ronda movement, well made dial, caseback and a proper sapphire crystal?

    Do you think this is similar to how Ebay authenticity program works? :D

    This guy.... this is the guy who sells horse racing tips, do you remember? He changed the name of his channel, I think it was called Authentic Swiss Watches or something like that originally. They are fake. He threatened us in the comments, said we should watch our backs

    Oooooh yes, that guy. So he posts these videos as a way to convince people what he sells is genuine and trying to demonstrate being a trustworthy seller

    Pics look like crap on my phone. Can’t see enough details. Box is fake tho. Numbers in bezel seem fine. I have one of these fakes. Everything looks great, until the bezel pip. Even the buckle is the right style, which used to be the way to tell fake from real. Specifically, the button mechanism. The fakes never had that littte plastic separater, and were made cheaply.

    Compared bezel numbers to my WAY208C my numbers are in the middle, these are closer to the outer edge.

    What sucks is, that guy probably got ripped off himself and has no idea.
