    Well, no debate necessary here... who wouldn't want a quartz powered Heuer 01? Nice to see they kept the lug bolts from the prototype...

    That looks quite good, without comparing to a real one I wouldn't have spotted it's a fake.

    I have yet to understand why people buy this garbage.
    I just bought a new Swatch automatic for a lesser price than any of these turds, but I can tell you with much more value.

    These accounts should be reported.

    You gotta love how the Turkish fakes don't even try to look real.

    Yeh looks ok on a cell phone screen, and that watch generally looks terrible in photos. Took me a while to love it on the wrist too!

    Poseur watches for poseur people, that's all I can make from it.
    And they are seriously ugly, no aesthetics whatsoever.
    The battery is probably the most expensive part :D

    But surely the silver bezel alone screams fake?

    Not really, theres a silver bezel 01. It is different to the fake one above, but I haven't got around to buying an 01 yet so its not something I see regularly so cant remember the exact colour scheme.

    Hoping to get some help from experts on this. I own a SLR Mercedes Benz and about to pull a plug on an used Grand Carrera Caliber 17 CAV518B RS2. The seller is not from South East Asia and claims the authenticity. From the first look it looks real to me but I would let our experts comment on it.
    Moderator: sorry I created a new thread for this...so please delete!

    Fair enough, I guess I have spent an awful lot of time looking at these for the past year. I probably would be less certain on the models that I am not so gung ho about.

    The photos are not the best but are those two "60" second/minute sub dials (at 6 o'clock and 9 o'clock)? The 12 o'clock sub dial also looks suspect (scale to 10?). Also, I'm not aware of a "chronometre" version of the F1 series. I'm leaning towards fake.

    Thanks, the 12 dial is suspicious to me as well... Here is a better picture
