    I found this on my local trade list,

    It looks like WAC1110 model, but if you look closely..."swiss made" is separated by 6o'clock indexes.

    I thought this only started with WAH model of formula 1....

    We need a movement pic!!

    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    I was suppose to meet the guy today, but I turned it down. Think of the awkwardness...

    "Hey man, your watch looks real suspicious. Do you mind if I open it up, so I can call you a fraud?"

    I understand.

    What I find interesting is how easily people do worse when posting in public forums! LOL I guess that is why we have moderators... but the TAG Crew is pretty mellow... I think that means most of us are secure enough in who we are so we don't have to build ourselves up by putting down others. That says something nice about TAG owners

    Re: Fake busters thread: ask about authenticity in this thread!

    Would anyone else care to comment on the authenticity of the Twin-Time near the end of page 5? I do have a few weeks to return it if it does turn out to be a replica. I've not found its serial number mentioned for any other watch photos or ads. About its operation - the manual winding is very smooth. I was expecting the clicky sound of the cheap watches of my childhood (showing my ignorance here). I thought the Twin-Time wasn't winding at all since it was so smooth and silent. Changing the date and GMT hand yielded a satisfying "thunk" feel as they settled into place. The second hand movement is not quite a sweep - more like 4 movements per second. Does that help to confirm it? Thanks to anyone who would like to weigh-in.

    Hey guys. Have a person that is offering me this watch saying its worth 1,000$ new. The condition is horrible yet I'm skeptical whether it is authentic. Take a gander!!
